Green Award "Board of Experts" meeting

On 28 May 2004, the Green Award Board of Experts will meet at the offices of the Green Award Foundation. Amongst many others, one of the main topics will be the final adoption of the Green Award Requirements and Regulations 2004.

Concerning the Regulations, an important item will be the simplification of the application procedure. That is to say, the certification agreement, familiar to those already participating in the scheme, will most likely disappear and be replaced by a renewed application form and revised Regulations.

One of the most significant new Requirements will be the so-called Green Passport for new-build vessels and vessel demolition guidelines (ref. ICS Guidelines). Furthermore, we will try to change our Reporting and Assessment Criteria for the Ranking Requirements (whereby points are allocated for certification) in order to align these to our positive-awarding philosophy.

In June, the Green Award Committee will be requested to adopt the Board of Experts' proposals, which will result in a new issue of the Seacure for Operations and Appendices in July. Stakeholders and participants will receive these on CD-Rom and/or on hard copy. In addition to the welcome we will extend to several new Board of Experts' members, an active senior officer from a ship owner / manager participating in the Green Award scheme will be invited to the Board of Experts' meetings.
