NEWS FOR BALLAST WATER MANAGEMENT CONVENTION

Dec. 18 2015

Update following IMO 29th Assembly

Recently at IMO 29th Assembly, Indonesia has ratified the Ballast Water Management Convention. This has triggered the process of verification and calculation at IMO whether the 35% criterion has been reached, which has not yet been confirmed by IMO.

Therefore the Ballast Water Management Convention has not yet entered into force,  but it is very likely that it will enter into force in future.

For the sake of information, a PPT presentation is attached related to survey and certification process.

Ship-owners are recommended to take the necessary steps for early voluntary compliance.
