CLASS society Det Norske Veritas and Germanischer Lloyd (DNV GL) announced a new plan to ensure recycling guidelines for disposing of ship in India and Bangladesh.
The new guidance plan, Ship Recycling: Navigating a Complex Regulatory Landscape, aims to create a worldwide basis for scrapping without hurting the environment.
With the new guidance plan and other enforcements coming to life, shipowners need to plan the future recycling of their vessels thoughtfully.
Not doing so can cause regulators to charge shipowners fines and penalties, some resulting in a criminal offences, said DNV GL.
'Ship recycling is an area where we can see significant pressure building in our industry, both from regulators, wider stakeholder groups, and the public,' said DNV GL Knut Orbeck-Nilssen, reported Fort Lauderdale's Maritime Executive.
'This means that ensuring compliance is essential for shipowners looking to protect their reputations and businesses while building trust that their vessels are recycled in a safe and sustainable manner.' said Mr Orbeck-Nilssen.
The detailed plan highlights the risks of recycling options and an in-depth look at the proper implementation of regulations and standards.
