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
