ClassNK Ventures into Turkish Ship Recycling

Tokyo’s classification society ClassNK has issued a Statement of Compliance (SoC) to a ship recycling facility in Turkey, verifying that the facilities are in line with the Hong Kong International Convention.

Although the HKC has yet to enter into force, the Izmir-based Isiksan Ship Recycling and Trading has carried out substantial improvements to its facility in a bid toward safer and greener ship recycling as well as developed the ship recycling facility plan (SRFP) required for a competent authority’s certification according to the HKC.

ClassNK reviewed the SRFP and confirmed that its ship recycling processes follow the SRFP in addition to conducting on-site inspections before issuing the SoC. This marks the first time a SoC has been issued to ship recycling facilities in Turkey.

“ClassNK is glad to issue the HKC Statement of Compliance and make its first step in Turkish ship recycling facilities. We will keep and further strengthen involvement to encourage safe and environmentally sound ship recycling practice through our verifications,” ClassNK’s Junichi Hirata, Project Manager of Ship Recycling Team, said.
