Nova Scotia recycling facility R.J. MacIsaac Ltd. (RJMI) has become the first Canadian facility to be certified according to the requirements of the Hong Kong International Convention for the Safe and Environmentally Sound Recycling of Ships (Hong Kong Convention) by Lloyd’s Register (LR). The Hong Kong Convention, which is set to enter into force in June 2025, ensures ship recycling adheres to strict safety and environmental conditions. RJMI had to demonstrate that its environmental protection, workforce safety, and emergency preparedness systems exceed the convention’s stringent conditions. RJMI is focused on maintaining its status as Canada’s leading green marine ship recycler.
