Environmental Management Law Compliance
National and International Authorities
Taking apart ships is a serious enterprise for technical, human and environmental concerns. It is a risky task demanding many proven skills and experience. Breaking apart, stripping and blowtorching a vessel is a demanding hazardous task.
Dangerous solid and liquid materials can be found in addition to ferrous and non-ferrous materials, due to this, technical guidelines overlook safe environmental management of the total and partial scrapping of vessels.
SHIPS SCRAPING PROCESS
The process of putting a vessel out of service is a sequential chain of operations carried out in different places until reaching its last place where it is completely dismantled; typically, the scrapping may be done at open sea anchored, by an intertidal zone by mooring facility, a beach or on land.

SHIPBREAKING STANDARD OPERATIONAL PROCEDURES
ACC Consortium pre-established sequential procedures are technically defined activities for the ship scrapping process; each step defined by our Comprehensive Management Plan ( CMP) guided by the current environmental regulations.
SAFE AND SECURE COMPLIANCE STEPS
Step #1 -Our dismantling steps applied and authorized by the local authorities for a safe and environmentally secured process.
Step #2 - Our planned process of ferrous and non-ferrous materials, recovery of equipment and final disposal of waste are our goals.
Step #3 - We initiate the process with assessment and inventory of waste materials and its disposal.
Step #4 - By monitoring segregation, deactivation, internal transport, storage and final disposal of hazardous/non-hazardous solid and liquid waste, we fully comply with local and international guidelines.
Step #5 - Responsibly and comprehensively implemented breaking management monitoring, a) avoid liabilities, b) guarantees work-teams safety and c) uncompromising environmental compliance.
We comply with regulatory environmental protection as defined by Environmental Management Law and by National and International Environmental Authorities.

Organizations Governing Ships Scrapping
IMO (International Maritime Organization)
ILO (International Labor Organization):
UNEP (United Nations Environment Program):
Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organics (POPs) .
EU Ship Recycling Regulation
ACC CONSORTIUM is committed to full compliance and support of the NGO ShipBreaking International Rules to protect people and our planet.
The Basel Convention on the Control of the Transboundary Movement of Hazardous and Their Disposal in 1995, became nternational Law on December 2019 regulating Ship Breaking.
This amendment prohibits dumping by shipbreaking of hazardous wastes from member states of the European Union, and all other countries.
