Maritime specialisation.

Sanitas Milieukundig Adviesbureau B.V. has in recent years specialised in the maritime branch. Sanitas investigates ships and drilling platforms, amongst other things, all over the world. Many harbours and shipyards are currently requesting an asbestos-free declaration.

According to the international Solas rules of the International Maritime Organisation (IMO), which were introduced in 2002, the use of asbestos is banned in new ships, with a few exceptions. Despite this, asbestos-containing materials are regularly used in new ships. If a ship has an asbestos-free declaration and/or an asbestos management plan, but has had maintenance in a non-European country, it is quite likely that asbestos-containing materials have again been used. Sanitas can help you investigate these ships and/or materials.
