The Norwegian Shipowners’ Association advocates necessary precautions to avoid ships being scrapped under environmentally harmful conditions. Members are expected to assume full responsibility for the proper recycling of their ships. This also applies to ships sold to third parties prior to recycling. The Norwegian Shipowners’ Association recommends its members to recycle their ships in accordance with the Hong Kong Convention and to avoid beaching. This also entails a requirement for documented plans to protect the environment and the safety of employees. NSA has established a ship recycling network where members share best practices.
