Amendments suggested in Shipbreaking Code 2013

MANU/PIBU/0479/2016

The Ministry of Shipping suggested changes to the Shipbreaking Code 2013 to address disposal and spillage of hazardous materials.

The proposals place onus on ship breakers to take measures preventing oil or noxious substances from entering into the sea. In case of spills, the responsible ship breaker will have to inform the coast guard and take action to remove the substance.

Comments and suggestions are being received by the Ministry till 30 June 2016.
