The course is to familiarise the participants with HongKong Convention with respect to Ship Recycling or in other words Ship Scrapping Industry. India is a major ship recycling destination and it is only prudent for stake holders to have knowledge of international rules related to Ship Scrapping Industry.

The Hong Kong International Convention for the Safe and Environmentally Sound Recycling of Ships, 2009 (the Ship Recycling Convention or the Hong Kong Convention) adopted in May 2009. On the entry into force of the Convention, the development and maintenance of an Inventory of Hazardous Materials, which identifies the amount and location of hazardous materials onboard a ship, is required for all ships over 500 GT. Furthermore, ships shall only be recycled at ship recycling facilities authorized by the competent authority. 

In 2018, India handled about five million gross tonnage (MnGT) annually, which is nearly 25% share of the world’s ship recycling industry. The government plans to nearly double this by 2024 to about nine MnGT.
