The European Commission has published a technical guide for ship recycling facilities that would like to be approved by the EU. Such scrap yards must provide safe working conditions, control pollution and proper waste management.

"Shipbreaking Yards that wants to get on the EU list of approved facilities have to meet high environmental and safety standards. The EU clearly states: An unprotected beach will never be an appropriate place for a high-risk heavy industries involving hazardous waste," said Ingvild Jenssen, political director of the NGO Shipbreaking Platform.

The EU's list of authorized ship recycling facilities will be a global reference point for sustainable ship recycling, NGO Shipbreaking Platform wrote. This will reward those companies that already have or are willing to invest in the necessary infrastructure and employment of fully trained workers to provide a safe and environmentally sound recycling practices. For shipowners, the EU list will be the only guarantee that their discarded ships do not harm workers or the environment.

"While only ships sailing an EU flag are legally obliged to use a EU approved facility, any shipping company in the world with a responsible policy should use EU-approved facilities to prove their efforts" said Ingvild Jenssen.
