THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Regulation (EU) No 1257/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 20 November 2013 on ship recycling and amending Regulation (EC) No 1013/2006 and Directive 2009/16/EC (1), and in particular Article 9(9) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Regulation (EU) No 1257/2013 lays down requirements for ship owners, administrations and recognised organisations regarding the issuance, endorsement, extension and presence on board of ready for recycling certificates.

(2)

In accordance with the requirements of Article 6(2)(c) of Regulation (EU) No 1257/2013, ships destined to be recycled are to hold a ready for recycling certificate.

(3)

Pursuant to Article 7 of Regulation (EU) No 1257/2013, a ship-specific ship recycling plan is to be developed prior to any recycling of a ship. The ship recycling plan is to address any ship-specific considerations that are not covered in the ship recycling facility plan or that require special procedures.

(4)

Pursuant to Article 8 of Regulation (EU) No 1257/2013, ships are to be subject to surveys by officers of administrations or of recognised organisations authorised by the administrations. The surveys aim to confirm that the inventories of hazardous materials comply with the applicable requirements of the Regulation.

(5)

Pursuant to Article 9(9) of Regulation (EU) No 1257/2013, after successful completion of a final survey, the administration or a recognised organisation authorised by it are to issue a ready for recycling certificate. That certificate is to be supplemented by the inventory of hazardous materials and the ship recycling plan. The format of the ready for recycling certificate must be consistent with Appendix 4 to the International Convention for the Safe and Environmentally Sound Recycling of Ships adopted in Hong Kong on 15 May 2009 (‘Hong Kong Convention’).

(6)

The measures provided for in this Decision are in accordance with the opinion of the Ship Recycling Regulation Committee established under Article 25 of Regulation (EU) No 1257/2013,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:

Article 1

Ready for recycling certificates issued in accordance with Article 9(9) and endorsed in accordance with Article 10(5) of Regulation (EU) No 1257/2013 shall comply with the format set out in the Annex to this Decision.

Article 2

This Decision shall enter into force on the twentieth day following that of its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union.

Done at Brussels, 19 December 2016.

For the Commission

The President
