Completing an IHM survey (Inventory of Hazardous Materials) and possessing an approved report, is only the beginning of being compliant. It is the ship owner's responsibility to ensure continuous conformity of the inventory. After an initial survey, you want to update your IHM after a purchase for the system of the vessel.
We know that sampling is a time-consuming task, especially the preparation. Therefore, we created the IHM Maintenance Emergency Kit. With this kit you can quickly take a sample after a single install on board and send it to one of our laboratories. This saves you a lot of time and money.
Emergency kit contents:
- Latex gloves
- Fine dust mask (FFP2 or 3)
- Sample bags
- QR code stickers: for marking the sample
- Sample bottle with a cotton wipe
- Extensive manual on how to use the kit
