WHAT we do
Metizoft delivers turn-key solutions in regards to Green
Passport and the new IHM convention. In close cooperation with the
largest classification companies we provide an IHM / Green Passport
approval and verification service for both newbuilds and existing
vessels. The IHM was previously called the Green Passport under the
2003 Guidelines on Ship Recycling.
With the new IHM (Inventory of Hazardous Materials) convention
it is required to have a registration of all components and
materials known to be potentially hazardous utilised in the
construction of the ship, its equipment and systems. This
responsibility falls on the successive owner of the ship and also
to maintain the accuracy of the Green Passport / IHM and
incorporate into it all relevant design and equipment changes, with
the final owner delivering the document, with the ship, to the
The Green Passport / IHM is a document that at the first stage
is produced by the shipyard at the construction stage and passed to
the purchaser of the vessel. This document should be in a format
that would enable any subsequent changes in materials or equipment
to be recorded. In order to do this the registration is not only
required during the building process, but all the way until the
ship at some stage reach the end of its operating life.

process both for the builder and the owner. To simplify this
process we offer a complete solution for all types of vessels and
