Last minute ballast water addition to RS Programme

September 19, 2017

In a timely addition to the NEVA 2017 Conference programme, the Russian Maritime Register of Shipping will stage a special seminar at its stand in Hall F at 11.00 on September 20 on ballast water management. The seminar, focusing on issues of compliance with the requirements of the IMO BWM 2004 Convention, will offer interested parties an update and clarification on the regulatory position on ballast water management, following on from decision taken at the last session of the Marine Environment Protection Committee at the IMO.

A compromise reached at MEPC 71 in July this year looks set to result in formal adoption of a compliance timetable that could delay implementation for existing ships but depending on the timing of their IOPP surveys.
