IMPEL Ship Recycling Project
26 Oct, 2022
The IMPEL Ship Recycling project aims to improve the collaboration between environmental and maritime authorities involved in this field. Different EU legislation and related competences make implementation, supervision and enforcement challenging. To preventing illegal shipments guidance material for authorities and other stakeholders involved will be developed and capacity building for inspectors and other stakeholders is organized. Also, the cooperation with other institutions, agencies, networks within and outside the EU as with non-governmental bodies will be explored.
Recently two in-person events were organized, such as a study visit to Norway and a workshop in the Netherlands. Besides presentations and discussions during both events field trips to EU-approved Ship Recycling facilities were organized.
