The Ship Recycling Facility Plan (SRFP) shall be adopted
by the board or appropriate governing body of the Recycling Company.
The SRFP is the main document that the Competent Authority(ies), or
organization recognized by it, will rely on in authorizing a Ship

that Facility operations conform to the description in the SRFP. It
is therefore critical that the SRFP should fully describe the operations
and procedures that are in place at the Ship Recycling Facility to

The SRFP should also describe the operational processes and procedures
involved in ship recycling at the Ship Recycling Facility, demonstrating
how the requirements of the Convention will be met. The recommended
format for the SRFP is included in appendix
