Ballast Water Testing Rules & Regulations
MR Ballast, a part of MR Marine Group, fully complies with the International Maritime Organization's (IMO) International Convention for the Control and Management of Ships' Ballast Water and Sediments (BWM), including the ballast water exchange standard and the ballast water performance standard.
These rules, entered into force in September 2017, were created to protect aquatic life from the spread of harmful organisms from one region to another. The rules outline strict standards and procedures that companies must comply with, in order to manage their ballast water and the organisms therein.
MR Ballast conducts all testing of BWMS in accordance with the BWMS Code, and are performed under the supervision of a national administration.
