Wilhelmsen Ship Management

Creating an IHM is one of the fundamental practices that keeps the maritime industry safe and sustainable. The Ship Recycling Regulation (SRR) prohibits or restricts the installation and use of hazardous materials on board ships. This obligation applies from 31 December 2020 to all EU flag ships and non-EU flag ships calling at an EU port or anchorage.

WSM's certified experts travel far and wide to go on board vessels for IHM inspection and sample collection to create an IHM for owners. With nearly 10 years of experience in IHM, our certified experts can offer IHM for vessels varying from traditional bulkers to advanced specialised ships and offshore installations.
