What to do if asbestos is found on board?
Depending on certain factors, there are different ways of dealing with asbestos on board ships. It is important that the handling of materials containing asbestos is described in an asbestos management plan and compliance with it is checked by a responsible, specially trained and authorized person.
In coordination with the respective flag states, measures can be taken that lead to an exemption without having to dismantle and dispose of asbestos-containing materials at enormous costs.
We will work with you to decide on possible measures, and we will also support you in carrying them out.
We will be happy to prepare the asbestos management plan for submission to the flag, which is necessary for the exemption, and will always be happy to help if the flag has any queries in this regard.
