The NGO Shipbreaking Platform is a global coalition of human rights and environmantal organisations working to ensure safe and environmantally sound ship dismantling world wide. The Platform has a strong focus on the practices of European ship owners and is closely working with the European Institutions to ensure effective European legislation on the issue.
The Platform has been advocacting for European legislation on the ship recycling practices of European ship owners, which resulted in the adoption of the EU Ship Recycling Regulation in December 2013. Currently, the Platform focusses on the implementation of the regulation including the set-up of the EU list of compliant ship recycling facilities. The Platform also monitors the enforcement of the EU Waste Shipment Regulation for end-of-life ships. Moreover, the Platform follows the EU's maritime and waste policies.
The Platform regularly publishes its "Platform News" on recent legislative or policy developments. Moreover, the "South Asia Quarterly Update" informs about European ship owners' shipbreaking practices. The Platform has a blog on ship owners' practices at www.offthebeach.org. The Platform will organise events and debates with European policy makers and industry stakeholders on the implementation of the EU Ship Recycling Regulation in 2015.
Actively contribute to policy development and implementation regarding end-of-life vessels.
