The new European Regulation on ship recycling (Regulation (EU) No 1257/2013) was published on December 10, 2013 in the Official Journal of the European Union and it will enter into force on December 30, 2013. In view of the international importance of the new Regulation GMS followed very closely and contributed advice towards its development. It is paramount that the implementation of the new Regulation by the European Commission in the next two years will be guided by realism and a clear understanding of the dynamics of the industry, and not by the impractical, not thought-out, and irrational campaigns to ban beaching. Over this period the industry will need to be alert so as to contribute its knowledge and guidance to the European Commission.
 
GMS has developed two papers in order to inform the shipping and ship recycling industries of the detailed requirements of the new European Regulation and of its effects on the commercial processes of buying and selling ships for recycling.
 
These two papers (titled as below) can be downloaded at - http://www.gmsinc.net/gms/news.php
