3.1 - Review of ship-specific information
For each ship that is to be recycled, the Ship Recycling Facility should, in accordance with regulation 8.4 of the Annex to the Convention, cooperate with the shipowner in order to prepare a SRP that incorporates all relevant information about the ship that may affect its safe and environmentally sound recycling.
The IHM is essential to the Ship Recycling Facility for planning and executing the removal and management of Hazardous Materials. The Ship Recycling Facility should obtain the completed IHM, including Part II and Part III, taking into account possible variations resulting from the ship's subsequent operations.
Examples of ship-specific information that is useful to the Ship Recycling Facility when developing a SRP include finished drawings and final specifications such as: general arrangement, capacity plan, shell expansion plan, fire control plan, trim and stability calculation, and light weight distribution or calculation table. Also the following may provide useful information: midship section, construction profile (including longitudinal sections, deck, inner bottom and deckhouse), longitudinal and transverse bulkhead principal transverse sections, fore and aft construction, superstructures, accommodation plan, hydrostatic curve or table, deck piping system, general arrangement of ventilators and air ducts, painting scheme, joiner works, engine room arrangement (if appropriate) and bilge piping system of pump room, pump room arrangement, engine room piping diagram, ballast piping and cargo piping diagram and manufacturers' finished drawings of major equipment. Such information could be useful in planning the ship recycling sequence in its entirety.
