BWM rulings

The IMO and authorities in America require that all ballast water must be properly treated to remove harmful organisms before discharge, in accordance with the International Convention for the Control and Management of Ships’ Ballast Water and Sediments (BWM Convention). 

Any ship 400 gross tonnage and above is required to have a Ballast Water Management certificate, as stipulated in the International Convention for the Control and Management of Ships‘ Ballast Water and Sediments. 

In our business (and in yours) it is important to keep up to date with regulations, treaties and conventions. These rulings determine the safety of your vessel and her crew and passengers, as well as helping us in our mission: to ensure clean oceans worldwide.

MR Ballast performs the necessary tests for your BWMS and your ballast water on board. We test the systems, analyze the water, and send out results to the relevant national authorities for approval, before we provide you with a certification of compliance. Our technicians are certified to service all brands of BWTS.
