Inventory of Hazardous Materials

Ensure your vessels are IHM compliant

All EU registered and all EU visiting ships above 500GT must have a certified Inventory of Hazardous Materials (IHM) on board. Our certified consultants provide IHM for vessels anywhere in the world, in line with Class Society requirements. Our team can handle IHM for both new and existing vessels.

Delivering trusted Inventory of Hazardous Materials surveys worldwide

With an estimated 12,000 vessels still without a certified IHM, here are 6 excellent reasons why you should choose SDSD for your IHM survey.
Global Reach
We have a professional team of IHM surveyors enabling us to undertake the survey at a selected port in-line with the vessel’s schedule.
Certified IHM experts
Our IHM surveyors are DNV-GL trained and certified for the preparing of Inventory Hazardous Material reports.
Compliance and Quality Control
All samples and documentation are created in compliance with the EU SRR regulations and we work closely with the major classification societies.
Proactive planning
We proactively coordinate with the DPA or compliance team to collate the records and complete the Visual Sampling Check Plan before attending the vessel.
Minimum disruption
Our surveyors capture the required information accurately whilst onboard the vessel using our IHM reporting software, minimizing disruption and ensuring the report is in depth and to the standards set by the classification society.
Your IHM partner for the entire ships life-cycle
With our expertise in the HazMat and IHM field we have developed an easy to use cloud based IHM maintenance software, available to our clients once the report is completed, to help them keep the IHM up to date in line with class requirements.

IHM Maintenance Software

Our IHM Maintenance Software keeps your ‘IHM Certificate’ up to date and ready for inspection by any Class/state representative, for review and proof as part of a vessel change of owner, flag or name; or as part of final dismantling in compliance with Parts II and III of the IHM process.
The IHM Maintenance Module links directly with your suppliers and procurement process via an easy to use the cloud-based portal. If a Material Declaration shows an item containing hazmat is above the accepted threshold, the data is automatically tagged and captured in the IHM Maintenance Module, along with the original PO, Items Certificate, SDoC, MD and the location on board and the location used.
