10 Technical Co-Operation

  10.1 Ship recycling, if conducted in an environmentally sound and a safe manner, is a positive benefit to the overall environment and to specific national and local economies and represents the most viable method of disposing of the majority of time-expired tonnage. Therefore, if the transfer of technology or aid funding is necessary to improve facilities and working practices in the facilities, organizations or nation groupings with access to economic assistance funds should co-operate with the Governments concerned with recycling on actual infrastructure projects.

  10.2 National or regional organizations should co-operate with Governments in ship recycling States and other interested parties on projects involving the transfer of technology or aid funding to improve facilities and working practices in the recycling facilities.
