The Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC) of the International Maritime Organization (IMO) approved, without reservations, the text of the draft ship recycling convention for adoption at a conference in 2009, when it met for its 58th session at IMO’s London headquarters.

The MEPC conducted an article-by-article and regulation-by-regulation review of the draft new convention providing globally applicable regulations for ship recycling and for recycling activities. The text will now be circulated for consideration and adoption by a diplomatic conference to be held in Hong Kong, China, from 11 to 15 May 2009.
