Ship Recycling Facility Plans

The Ship Recycling Facility Plan (SRFP) is the main document relied upon by Competent Authorities (or an organisation recognised by them) when authorising a Ship Recycling Facility.

The plan should fully describe the operations and procedures that are in place at the Ship Recycling Facility to ensure compliance with the Hong Kong Convention and the EU Ship Recycling Regulations.

The SRFP should also demonstrate knowledge and understanding of;

  • all applicable statutory and regulatory requirements; 
  • a strong commitment to worker health and safety and protection of the environment; 
  • the operational processes and procedures involved in ship recycling; and,
  • how the requirements of the Convention will be met.

An SRFP should also provide information regarding the organisational structure and management policies of the Recycling Company, an overview of the Ship Recycling Facility and their methodologies relating to shipping recycling.

Working from our offices across the UK and Singapore and stations in China and Turkey, our consultants can accurately build an internationally recognised SRFP, providing evidence-based advice on how to deal with the hazardous material content.

A visit to the yard from one of our surveyors will allow us to compile an audit report of the facilities currently being used, or that are planned to be used, and provide if necessary, suggestions for improvement or recommendations that could allow the yard to deal with a greater range of hazardous materials in the future.
