\documentclass{svmono}
\usepackage{amsmath}

\begin{document}
\end{document}

generates the warning

Package amsmath Warning: Unable to redefine math accent \vec.

Is there any way to remove this warning?

The svmono class by default redefines the \vec command, so amsmath emits its warning, because it finds a different definition than expected.

Just call

\documentclass[vecarrow]{svmono}

If you prefer to have the svmono default definition, do

\renewcommand{\vec}[1]{\mathbf{#1}}

while if you prefer the "italic bold" one that conforms to ISO regulations, do

\usepackage{bm}
\renewcommand{\vec}[1]{\bm{#1}}

In both cases this should go after having loaded amsmath. Both are more efficient than the clumsy definitions in svmono.cls.
