MEPC - Ship recycling

A Working Group was convened to further develop the draft Ship Recycling Convention. It agreed to stage an inter-sessional working group in May 2007 to ensure that the Convention is ready in time for adoption at a Conference in 2009.


Following a flurry of activity on the issue over the last three years, the Working Group at this session settled into the more mundane but important drafting aspect of the Convention with some of the main issues such as reporting requirements, surveys and certification still to be finalised. INTERTANKO will participate in a meeting of the Correspondence Group due to be held between now and the May Working Group meeting.
