ClassNK has issued a Statement of Compliance (SoC) to a ship recycling facility in Izmir, Turkey, verifying that the facilities are in line with the Hong Kong International Convention for the Safe and Environmentally Sound Recycling of Ships, 2009 (HKC). This marks the first time a SoC has been issued to ship recycling facilities in Turkey.

The classification society explained that, although the Convention has yet to enter into force, Isikan Ship Recycling and Trading Co Ltd. has carried out substantial improvements to its facility “in a bid toward safer and greener ship recycling as well as developed the Ship Recycling Facility Plan (SRFP) required for a competent authority’s certification according to the HKC.”

ClassNK reviewed the SRFP prepared by Isikan, which comply with requirements of the Hong Kong Convention, and confirmed that its ship recycling processes follow the SRFP in addition to conducting on-site inspections, before issuing the SoC.

“ClassNK is glad to issue the HKC Statement of Compliance and make its first step in Turkish ship recycling facilities. We will keep and further strengthen involvement to encourage safe and environmentally sound ship recycling practice through our verifications” says ClassNK’s Junichi Hirata, Project Manager of Ship Recycling Team.
