Spring 2020 Operational Notice

As a result of measures in place across the globe to tackle the spread of Covid 19, the industry is experiencing a number of operational restrictions. The Cleanship IHM team are working within the guidelines set out by the WHO and local governments. We are also liaising with port authorities and owners to navigate a safe and timely completion of IHM surveys in instances where we are able to board. 

Upon restrictions being lifted, it is likely that IHM capacity will be limited. The Cleanship team are class certified and are able to assist with IHM Part I completion throughout the remainder of 2020. We are currently scheduling for this period to ensure that we can assist vessels  in their timely compliance with EU SRR. 

Our fully class accredited team of marine inspectors can assist you with the timely creation of IHM Part I in compliance with EU SRR.

Our experienced team of IHM surveyors have carried out over 50 IHM inspections to date on a range of vessel types  

Cleanship offer a full end-to-end IHM solution, with a yearly audit option to take the upkeep off your hands. We ensure expedient mobilisation and can facilitate the entire class approval process on your behalf.

In addition to initial creation of IHM Part I, we also offer an IHM management service enabling vessel owners to focus on the day to day operations of the vessel and leave the management and upkeep of the IHM to us.
