Ballast Water Management System Guide
This Ballast Water Management System (BWMS) User Guide (“the Guide”) simplifies the complex regulatory framework by providing step-by-step methods for integrating and operating a compliant BWMS. A successful BWM program will equally prioritize compliance with safe operations for vessels and their crew.
This Guide covers all aspects of the BWMS life cycle, in three parts:
Part A - Planning, installation, and commissioning
Part B - Maintaining compliance, monitoring, and enforcement
Part C - Training, equipment maintenance, and repair
