3 Ship Recycling Facility Plan (SRFP)

 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 Recycling Facility. Site inspections are to be utilized to verify 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 ensure compliance with the Convention.

 The SRFP should demonstrate knowledge and understanding of all applicable statutory and regulatory requirements and a strong commitment to worker health and safety and protection of the environment. 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 1.
