Inventory of Hazardous Materials
WSM recommends you to keep your Inventory of Hazardous Materials (IHM) a living document. We provide Class certified IHM for all types of vessels anywhere in the world.
WHAT IS AN IHM?
An IHM is a document in which all potentially hazardous material onboard a vessel that can pose a risk to the health and safety of people or to the environment is located, identified and quantified.
Our strong team of experts can handle IHM for both new and existing vessels in an efficient, flexible and economical manner. We work with all large classification societies and vessels varying from traditional bulkers and tankers to more advanced specialised ships and offshore installations.

WHY DO YOU NEED IT?
It is mandatory for all ships larger than 500 tonnes to keep an IHM. The inventory replaces the Green Passport, adopted in the Hong Kong International Convention in 2009, and is a requirement by the EU Ship Recycling Regulation 2013.
Our IHM development is in accordance to the Hong Kong Convention, MEPC269(68) Guidelines and also EU Ship Recycling Regulation (SRR).
