What is a Ship Recycling Facility Plan?

Developed by the Hong Kong International Convention for the Safe and Environmentally Sound Recycling of Ships 2009, with input from the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) and its members, 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 convention and subsequent regulations for the SRFP are in place to ensure that recycled ships pose no threat to either human life or the environment during or after they have been recycled.

Do I need a Ship Recycling Facility Plan?

In accordance with the 2011 Guidelines for the Development of the Ship Recycling Plan under the Hong Kong Convention, and the EU Ship Recycling Regulations, ships that are to be recycled require a Ship Recycling Plan, provided by the Ship Recycling Facility, who must also evidence a plan for how they safely dispose of the ships under their Ship Recycling Facility Plan (SRFP).

What should be included in my Ship Recycling Facility Plan?

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.

Our Consultants can assist you in preparing for the development of the Ship Recycling Plan to ensure that they meet all requirements under the guidance and are fit for purpose. We can also assist you in carrying out inspection and testing works for the identification of hazardous materials and managing any remediation works required as part of the process.

Why should I use Lucion to conduct my Ship Recycling Facility Plan?

Working from our international offices, 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.

We can also assist you in carrying out inspection and testing works on your facility that may be required as content for the plan and can also manage any remediation works required as part of the process to ensure compliance with appropriate requirements and guidance.
