The Revised GESAMP Hazard Evaluation Procedure for Chemical Substances Carried by Ships

Reports and Studies No. 64

The revised GESAMP Hazard Evaluation Procedure provides an

ships. Hazards to both humans and the marine environment are
considered and the information is collated in the form of a 'hazard
profile', an easily read fingerprint of the hazard characteristics of each
substance. The hazard profiles of substances carried by ships that have
been reviewed by the EHS2 Working Group of GESAMP are
published at regular intervals and a 'composite list' is available from
the International Maritime Organization (IMO)...
