From 31 December 2020, all ships of 500 GT and above – regardless of the flag they are flying – will be required to carry an inventory of hazardous materials (IHM) when calling a port or anchorage of a country that is a member of the European Union (EU) or European Economic Area (EEA). Failure to do so may result in penalisation.

The new EC guidelines give shipowners a limited but welcome respite by applying a harmonised approach for a period of 6 months after the entry into application of the IHM obligations.
