CE 1105: Maritime Hazardous Material Inventory

CE 1105 Course Description

What happens to a vessel when it is no longer sea-worthy?

The 2009 Hong Kong Convention for the Safe and Environmentally Sound Recycling of Ships aims to ensure that vessels, upon being recycled at the end of their operational lives, do not present any unnecessary hazards to human health, safety, nor the environment.  This course was designed to assist the student in becoming familiar with the requirements of the 2009 Hong Kong Convention.  These requirements will become law effective, in 2020, for all vessels over 500GT.
