  Article 6 of the Convention requires the authorization of Ship Recycling Facilities that recycle ships to which the Convention applies or ships treated similarly pursuant to article 3.4 of the Convention. Regulation 18 specifies that such authorized Ship Recycling Facilities shall develop a comprehensive Ship Recycling Facility Plan (SRFP) that, among others, should cover worker safety and training, protection of human health and the environment, roles and responsibilities of personnel, emergency preparedness and response and systems for monitoring, reporting and record-keeping.

 These guidelines describe the recommended content of the SRFP, and information is provided where appropriate to illustrate the performance standards anticipated by specific regulations of the Convention.
