First Green Passport


First Green Passport

Lloyd’s Register has verified the world’s first ‘Green Passport’ in full compliance with the International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) Guidelines on Ship Recycling for the LNG carrier Granatina. The vessel was built in 2003 by Daewoo Marine Shipbuilding and Engineering in Korea to high safety and environmental standards. The Green Passport, as defined by the IMO guidelines, is a document which contains an inventory of all the materials onboard a ship which may be hazardous to human health or to the environment which should accompany the ship throughout its operational life. The Green Passport is to be passed by the owner to the ship recycling yard at the end of the ship’s life, to enable the yard to formulate a safe and environmentally sound way of breaking the ship.

The process involved submission of documents and material specifications to Lloyd’s Register for appraisal, leading to the formulation of a draft Green Passport. A survey was then held onboard the vessel while discharging in Portugal to verify the contents of the Green Passport against the vessel. Upon satisfactory completion, the document of compliance and the Green Passport were issued by Lloyd’s Register and added to the vessel’s records. To ensure proper maintenance, the vessel will be subject to annual verification of the Green Passport concurrent with its normal annual surveys.
