OF WORK PROCEDURES IN SHIPBREAKING YARDS
Monitoring compliance to environmental laws and regulations can be costly and time consuming for insurers, shipowners and regulators alike. Failure to comply with legislation relating to the recycling of vessels, such as the European Waste Shipment Regulations and UN Basel Convention, as well as local laws, may lead to serious consequences, including imprisonment of the parties involved, investigation of the insurers and heavy financial penalties. Above all, these cases will hit the media powerfully, resulting in significant reputational consequences.
