The International Convention for the Control and Management of Ships Ballast Water & Sediments (BWM Convention) comes into force from 8th September 2017.
Under the Convention, all ships operating internationally are required to manage their ballast water and sediments to certain standards, along with implementation of a ship-specific Ballast Water Management Plan. Ships will also have to carry a Ballast Water Record Book and International Ballast Water Management Certificate.
Our consultants can provide a concise framework and templates, giving shipping companies and their vessels the ability to complete and maintain their own unique plans.
