Making a Submission: EU SRR (European Ship Recycling Regulation)

EU SRR Regulation No. 1257/2013 attempts to reduce the negative impacts of ship recycling, by requiring ships above 500 gross tonnes, calling at a port or anchorage of a Member State to (i) maintain an EU SRR inventory, if the flag of the ship belongs to an EU member state; (ii) maintain an approved IHM Part I inventory, if the flag of the ship belongs to a non-EU member state. 

This EU SRR survey collects Product level material composition data to determine the existence of EU SRR substances within. Suppliers to the shipbuilding industry should identify and declare whether or not the materials listed are present in the Parts they are declaring for. 

Once you receive the relevant campaign email, you can respond to the open request by selecting it from the Supplier Portal landing page.

Please Note: Making a valid EU-SRR declaration requires you to submit a completed Supplier Declaration of Conformity for Material Declaration Management (SDoc) in addition to the manual declaration of any substances contained in your parts or products. You received a blank SDoC template in the campaign email, but you can also download one from the module Resources section.
