Hazardous Materials

The EU has a regulation which requires every ship to make an inventory of all hazardous materials on board and to map this. This applies to all ships at the end of their life cycle and will apply to all sailing vessels by 31 December 2020 at the latest. Our colleagues at Eurofins IHM can make this Inventory of Hazardous Materials (IHM) for you. They make a survey of all hazardous materials on board and compile these in an inventory. Hazardous means any material or substance that may be dangerous to human health and/or the environment.

International Compliance

After every investigation Eurofins IHM prepares a report complying with the guidelines of the International Maritime Organization (IMO), the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) convention and the instructions of the Netherlands Shipping Inspectorate (Human Environment and Transport Inspectorate). By doing so Eurofins complies with strict international regulations with regard to ​​asbestos and other hazardous materials in the maritime sector. Each survey is carried out by one of our certified Hazardous Materials experts.
