IHM Maintenance Service by OSM Bergen-min

IHM Maintenance Service by OSM Bergen

With the EU Regulative SRR 1257/2013, which was implemented 1st January 2021, all vessels calling a port in the EU must have an IHM-certificate onboard (Inventory of Hazardous Materials).

In addition to the above, IMO Guidelines MEPC. 269 (68) also state that the shipowner is responsible to maintain the IHM-inventory list during the vessels' lifetime.

Ship-owners must implement specific measures to ensure conformity of part I of the inventory (MEPC 5.2). For this reason, most shipowners and management companies have decided to outsource this job to Hazardous Materials companies.

However, OSM Bergen has in-house competence in IHM maintenance, hence can offer the same service as a third-party company, to all existing customers offered Technical Management for their vessels. The difference is that we offer you this service at prices below market rates, which gives you, our existing customer, savings!
