ABSTRACT: The new international convention on ship recycling was adopted by IMO in May 2009 in Hong Kong, China, in accordance with IMO in December 2009. The Hong Kong International Convention for the environmentally sound management and security ships recycling is to ensure that vessels are to be recycled once they have reached the end of its useful life not involve an unreasonable risk to human health and safety or the environment. This new agreement includes: the design, construction, operation and preparation of ships to facilitate safe and environmentally sound recycling, without compromising the safety and operational efficiency of ships, the operation of ship recycling facilities in terms of Safety and Environment and the establishment of an enforcement mechanism for ship recycling, incorporating certification and reporting requirements. The text has been developed over three years of preparatory work before the Conference, with contributions from Member States of IMO and non-governmental organizations and in cooperation with the ILO and the parties of Convention Basilea.
