Ballast Water Management Convention and Code compliance



Ballast Water Treatment System (BWT) Update

UK P&I has advised that individual vessel compliance dates for installing approved BWTS are tied to the first renewal date of their International Oil Pollution Prevention (IOPP) survey carried out after 19 September 2019. This year, 2022, will be a peak season for BWTS installations, according to the leading classification society, DNV1. They have projected that about 30% of the vessels on international voyages will reach their mandatory compliance dates in 2022. After that, installations will continue until 2024, by when the entire global seagoing fleet on international voyages must be compliant.


Following the latest news from UK P&I, we would like to remind all customers to proactively start preparations for the BWTs installations if not already been scheduled.
