Who we are
Is there such a thing as a green industry?
It certainly could be, and by taking actions today we believe it will be a reality in the future.

Metizoft is among the worlds first and leading consulting companies with Green Passport/Inventory of Hazardous Materials (IHM) solutions delivered to shipyards, owners, suppliers and recycling facilities.

Our goal is to give your company a green profile either you are a constructor or a ship owner.

We believe that it is possible to make shipping a green process, all the way from production and operation, to recirculation and scrapping of vessels. By achieving a Green Passport / IHM sertification you are taking responsibility for the global climate, and also giving the employees offshore a safer place to work. By taking actions today you will be more able and prepared to handle the conventions that will be put into force in near future.

Metizoft delivers turn-key solutions in regards to Green Passport and the new IHM convention. In close cooperation with the largest classification companies we provide an IHM / Green Passport approval and verification service for both newbuilds and existing vessels. The IHM was previously called the Green Passport under the 2003 Guidelines on Ship Recycling.

With the new IHM (Inventory of Hazardous Materials) convention it is required to have a registration of all components and materials known to be potentially hazardous utilised in the construction of the ship, its equipment and systems. This responsibility falls on the successive owner of the ship and also to maintain the accuracy of the Green Passport / IHM and incorporate into it all relevant design and equipment changes, with the final owner delivering the document, with the ship, to the recycling facility.

The Green Passport / IHM is a document that at the first stage is produced by the shipyard at the construction stage and passed to the purchaser of the vessel. This document should be in a format that would enable any subsequent changes in materials or equipment to be recorded. In order to do this the registration is not only required during the building process, but all the way until the ship at some stage reach the end of its operating life.

We know that this can be a frustrating and time-consuming process both for the builder and the owner. To simplify this process we offer a complete solution for all types of vessels and maritime constructions that comes under the Green Passport resolution and IHM convention.

We are handling all the information regarding hazardous materials in line with the new IHM convention and all the responsibility for updates in line with the legislation is completely taken care of by us. At Metizoft we have the special competence needed to resolve these issues, ensuring that your company's environmental profile is being safeguarded in a professional way.
