IHM Survey/Inspection

Through Metizoft’s IHM Survey / Inspection we’ll provide HazMat inspection on-board vessels to comply with both the EU Ship Recycling Regulation (EU SRR) and the IMO MEPC.269(68) requirements.

All of Metizoft Enviro’s HazMat Inspections are carried out by our dedicate team of DNV GL Approved HazMat Experts. Our experts work very closely with the ship’s crew and the Classification societies, ensuring that the shipowner not only complies with the regulation but also has an accurate overview of hazardous materials on-board.

Besides complying to the EU SRR and/or IMO MEPC.269(68), we also see an increasing number of shipowners engaging Metizoft to perform the HazMat surveys / inspections for their vessels prior to scrapping. This demonstrates their effort towards a safer and greener way of scrapping a vessel.
