Appendix 1 - List of Hazardous Wastes and Substances that are Relevant to Ship Recycling

 (based on Appendix B to the "Technical Guidelines for the Environmentally Sound Management of the Full and Partial Dismantling of Ships, 2002").

  This list is intended to be used for the identification of potentially hazardous materials inherent in the ship's structure and on board ships (see sections 4, 6 and 7) and is not part of the Green Passport.

 The numbers in the tables refer to Annex VIII to the Basel Convention.

Wastes and substances that may be inherent in the ship structure
