Ship recycling

European List of ship recycling facilities

From 31 December 2018, large commercial seagoing vessels flying the flag of an EU Member State may be recycled only in safe and sound ship recycling facilities included in the European List of ship recycling facilities (‘the European List’).

The European List was first established on 19 December 2016 and last updated on 6 December 2018 (see the list here and press release here). It now contains 26 shipyards, including 23 facilities located in 12 Member States of the European Union, 2 facilities in Turkey and 1 facility in the United States of America.

To be included in the European List, any ship recycling facility irrespective of its location has to comply with a number of safety and environmental requirements. In April 2016, the Commission issued technical guidelines on these requirements.

For facilities located in the EU, it is the national authorities of the Member States which indicate to the Commission which facilities located on their territory are compliant.

Ship recycling facilities located in third countries and intending to recycle ships flying a flag of a Member State shall submit an application to the Commission for inclusion in the European List. The template for applications can be found here

The Commission has received a number of applications from ship recycling facilities located in third countries (see attached table below). The applications are being thoroughly reviewed and site inspections conducted to check their credentials. The Commission then decides on their inclusion in the European List.
