Ballast Water Management Reporting Requirements

Monday, January 06, 2003
The U.S. Coast Guard is proposing to establish penalty provisions for non-submission of Ballast Water Management Reports. The Coast Guard also proposes widening the applicability of the reporting and recordkeeping requirements to all vessels bound for ports or places within the United States, with minor exceptions.

The penalty of failure to submit the report would be $25,000. Source: HK Law
