IMO publishes Report of the 42nd Session of GESAMP/EHS Working Group

The 42nd Session of the GESAMP Working Group on the Evaluation of the Hazards of Harmful Substances Carried by Ships (EHS 42) was held at IMO Headquarters in London earlier this year. 

The report on this meeting has just been released. Comparison with the report of the GESAMP/EHS and the 'Updated List of Products that have been omitted from either Chapter 17 or 18 of the IBC Code due to missing safety data, pollution data or both' (as circulated at IMO Assembly December 2005) indicates that approximately 60 products remain on that list.
