Ship recycling was first brought to the attention of the Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC) of the International Maritime Organization (IMO) in 1998, when Norway proposed that it be included in the work programme of the MEPC as a high priority item in order to develop an internationally acceptable instrument for reducing environmental, occupational, health and safety risks associated with the demolition and scrapping of ships that had reached the end of their useful operating life. In March 2000, ship recycling was formally included in the agenda of the MEPC 44 session.

MEPC 64/INF.2

Calculation of recycling capacity for meeting the entry-into-force conditions of the Hong Kong Convention

A​​s a specialized agency of the United Nations, IMO is the global standard-setting authority for the safety, security and environmental performance of international shipping. Its main role is to create a regulatory framework for the shipping industry that is fair and effective, universally adopted and universally implemented.  

In other words, its role is to create a level playing-field so that ship operators cannot address their financial issues by simply cutting corners and compromising on safety, security and environmental performance. This approach also encourages innovation and efficiency.

Shipping is a truly international industry, and it can only operate effectively if the regulations and standards are themselves agreed, adopted and implemented on an international basis. And IMO is the forum at which this process takes place.
