Green Passport

Green Passport - another name for Inventory of Hazardous Materials

 

An Inventory of Hazardous Materials (also known as a Green Passport) is one of the requirements of the Hong Kong convention for the ‘safe and environmentally sound recycling of ships’ (Hong Kong Convention) which was adopted in May 2009.[1] The conference that created the convention was attended in 2009 by members of 63 countries, and overseen by the International Maritime Organisation (IMO), which is a specialist agency of the United Nations (U.N).

Introduced in the 2009 Hong Kong Convention for the Safe and Environmentally Sound Recycling of Ships. When the convention becomes compulsory, by 2015, all ships weighing over 500GT will be required to carry the inventory.

 

The inventory of hazardous materials has been introduced to ensure the safety of all those who could potentially be exposed to hazardous materials. This could include workers in the ship yards, on the ships and at the recycling yards. Hazards that are commonly found on vessels include asbestos, PCBs, TBTs, ODS and microbiological contaminants. A detailed Inventory of all Hazardous Materials is required.

Green Passport
ShipSurvey provides audits & surveys for hazardous materials on vessels around the world, whether they are being built, traded, or due to be recycled. The survey can take place while the vessel is at sea or in port and our surveying teams are able to meet and leave the vessel at most ports internationally.
