COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING DECISION (EU) 2015/2398

of 17 December 2015

on information and documentation related to an application for a facility located in a third country for inclusion in the European List of ship recycling facilities

(Text with EEA relevance)

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 15(3) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Regulation (EU) No 1257/2013, in particular in its Title III, lays down requirements for ship recycling facilities wishing to recycle ships flying the flag of a Member State of the European Union and thereby applying for inclusion in the European List of ship recycling facilities.

(2)

Article 15(2) of Regulation (EU) No 1257/2013 lists information and documentation to be provided by ship recycling companies as part of their application files for ship recycling facilities located in a third country for inclusion on the European List. Furthermore, Article 16(2) lists information to be published in the Official Journal about the ship recycling facility to be included in the European List.

(3)

Contrary to other Implementing Acts to be adopted under the Ship Recycling Regulation, there is no directly equivalent template available from the Hong Kong Convention for the safe and environmentally sound recycling of ship of 2009. The format given in Annex therefore comprises relevant extracts from Hong Kong Convention Appendix 5 (‘Document of Authorization of Ship Recycling’ — DASR) and from the relevant IMO guidelines related to ship recycling facilities and adds information and documentation requirements added in the Ship Recycling Regulation (as listed in Articles 15(2) and 16(2) of the Regulation).

(4)

Stakeholders were consulted in writing on the contents of the Decision. The Annex takes comments made into account.

(5)

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

The information and documentation required to identify a ship-recycling facility located in a third country applying for inclusion in the European List of ship recycling facilities shall be submitted in the format provided in the Annex.

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, 17 December 2015.

For the Commission

The President

Safe-for-hot work and Safe-for-entry criteria

As per Article 15(2)(d), the ship recycling company provides evidence that the ship recycling facility is capable of establishing, maintaining and monitoring of the safe-for-hot work and safe-for-entry criteria throughout the ship recycling process.

 

Evidence attached to the application file (17)

Safe-for-hot work

 

Safe-for-entry conditions

 


(1)  See e.g. paragraph 3 in Section 3.4.1 of IMO guidelines, Resolution MEPC.210(63), page 24.

(3)  At the time of application.

(4)  The figure should be documented, e.g. via official confirmations of completion of recycling of ships recycled that year, indicating LDT of the ships. As per Article 32 of the EU SRR, the figure is calculated as ‘the sum of the weight of ships expressed in LDT that have been recycled in a given year in that facility. The maximum annual ship recycling output is determined by selecting the highest value occurring in the preceding 10-year period for each ship recycling facility, or, in the case of a newly authorised ship recycling facility, the highest annual value achieved at that facility’.

(5)  A map of the boundary of the ship recycling facility and the location of Ship Recycling operations within it is attached as per Article 15(2)(e) of the Regulation.

(6)  Please note that it is only necessary to fill in corresponding lines in the table with regard to those hazardous materials the ship recycling facility is authorised to remove.

(7)  Please note that the ship recycling company must at all times be in a position to provide evidence of the competence of each member of personnel authorised to carry out the removal of hazardous materials to the European Commission or agents acting on its behalf.

(9)  Please list in the table and attach a copy of all permits, license or authorisations granted by the competent authorities.

(10)  Name of the ship recycling company and/or its contractor/sub-contractor concerned by the document.

Any limitations imposed under the authorisation granted by the competent authority/-ies of the country where the facility is located should be mentioned. The hazardous materials may be present in parts of the ship or equipment (e.g. in paint or as plastic additives) or in chemical mixtures (e.g. cooling fluids).

(12)  As per Article 15(2)(f)(ii) of the Regulation, please 1) indicate which management process will be applied, 2) indicate the location where the activity takes place (either within the facility or at a downstream waste management facility — in the latter case, information should also be provided, including the facility name and contact information) and 3) provide evidence that the applied process will be carried out without endangering human health and in an environmentally sound manner.

(13)  Name of the ship recycling company.

(14)  The procedure is described in Article 7(3) of the Ship Recycling Regulation.
