The Ship Recycling Facilities Regulations were laid in Parliament on 3 March 2014 to come into force from 26 March 2014.
This consultation ran from
Seeking views on changes that UK facilities need to make to be authorised to carry out recycling activities on EU flagged ships.
This consultation was held on another website.
We want to know what you think about proposals to change how UK ship recycling facilities are regulated to work on EU flagged ships. The new requirements are detailed in the EU ship recycling regulation (1257/2013). Proposed changes include:
- identifying the competent authorities in the UK
- how these authorities will permit and authorise work
- what changes ship recycling facilities in the UK will need to make to comply with the regulations
- how ship recycling facilities can apply to be included on the European List of authorised facilities
