New regulation for the commissioning testing of Ballast Water Management Systems.
The Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC) of the IMO had adopted amendments to the IBWMC at its 75th sessions.
Amendments are related to the commissioning testing of Ballast Water Management Systems as indicated in the Resolution MEPC.325(75), which will enter in force on 1 June 2022, and will be required for the initial survey or when performing an additional survey for retrofits.
These surveys shall confirm that a commissioning test has been conducted to validate the installation of any ballast water management system by demonstrating that its mechanical, physical, chemical, and biological processes are working properly, taking into account the guidelines developed by the Organization.
