BWMS commissioning testing: making it work in practice

  • Date: Monday 15 February - 
  • Time: 09:00-09:45GMT           17:00-17:45Singapore/China time

November’s IMO MEPC 75 addressed the practical constraints industry has faced on BWMS commissioning testing by approving revised guidance on ballast water sampling and analysis. However, confusion surrounds testing versus type approval. And some flag administrations are requiring implementation of testing before the BWM Convention amendments enter into force. Where does this leave the owner/operator?

Join us as we cover:

  • Explanation of type-approval versus testing
  • Preventing issues by providing early testing results and analysing failures
  • Overcoming issues with scheduling and incomplete testing
  • COVID-19, vessel attendance and disrupted commissioning testing
  • Flag states’ requirements: testing and standards
  • Identifying and standardising commissioning testing

Panellists include:

  • Michael Haraldsson, Global BDM, CTI-Maritec
  • Stephen Loiacono, Scientific Program Manager, Golden Bear Research Center
  • Mark Riggio, Head of Marine, Filtersafe Automatic Screen Filtration
  • Dr Guillaume Drillet, Regional Manager, SGS
