IHM (Inventory of Hazardous Materials)

In view of an increased concern about various environmental issues, the focus on the use of non-hazardous materials in ship design, building and operation is also increasing. Ships on international voyages of 500GT and above flying the flag of a Member State or the flag of a third country calling on European Ports, must carry on board a ship-specific Inventory of Hazardous Materials (IHM) and a valid certification subject to the Regulation.

Hazardous material is any substance that can pose a risk to the health and safety of human or of the environment as identified and listed by the Hong Kong Convention (2009) & EU Regulation 1257/2013

Inventory of Hazardous Material (IHM) is a document in which all potentially hazardous materials onboard a vessel are identified, located and quantified and follows IMO Resolution MEPC.269(68) guidelines. More specifically the IHM deadlines are the following:

  • Existing ships, by 31st December 2020
  • New ships, by 31st December 2018
