Shree Ram Group response
The Shree Ram Group currently operates four ship-recycling facilities at Alang. All facilities are compliant with the national law and have necessary operational approvals in place...In Dec ‘15, Shree Ram (Plot 78) was granted Statement of Compliance to the Hong Kong Convention (HKC) from ClassNK, a reputable international classification society...Danwatch has documented non-compliance situations related to personal protective equipment’s (PPE) which Maersk’s audits already point out to. This is always regrettable and we do not deny that in a few instances requirements have been breached, but we are making a constant effort. These were exceptions at Plot 78 and we are working every day to make sure this does not re-occur.
