Expertise> Practice areas> Ship recycling

Malta is the perfect location from where to organise and facilitate the recycling of ships. The island’s’ geographical location, together with the local authorities’ business-friendly, can-do approach has caught the attention of owners seeking best practices to recycle vessels that are at the end of their service life.

Ganado Advocates is able to assist ship owners through all legal, regulatory, operational and administrative processes to ensure a smooth and seamless procedure, from the initial stages of notification of the shipment of waste or the recycling of vessels to the final stages following recycling and/or disposal.

Working with the local port and environmental authorities, local agents and law firms in foreign jurisdictions where recycling yards are located, the firm has over the years accumulated the necessary experience to be in a position to advise on all aspects of the process.
