1.1 Objectives of the guidelines

 These guidelines provide stakeholders, particularly Ship Recycling Facilities, with recommendations for the safe and environmentally sound recycling of ships and implementation of the Hong Kong International Convention for the Safe and Environmentally Sound Recycling of Ships, 2009 (hereafter "the Convention").

 It should be noted that article 6 and regulations 9 and 17 to 25 of the annex to the Convention provide requirements for Ship Recycling Facilities and require these guidelines to be taken into account.

 These guidelines should be used primarily by Ship Recycling Facilities, but other stakeholders such as the Competent Authority(ies) and the organizations recognized by it may also find them useful in implementing the Convention.
