BIMCO & Fathom have joined forces to provide comprehensive information on ballast water treatment, to help shipowners make wise decisions in advance of new Ballast Water Management Regulations which are likely to be implemented in 2014.

The publishers explain that the Guide will give shipowners and operators full understanding of how ballast water management regulations and options affect their operations. It will provide full insight, comprehensive guidance and practical tools for decision-making and implementation, including:

  • Regulatory requirements and what they mean.
  • A technical breakdown of ballast water treatment technology.
  • Key considerations - planning for compliance.
  • Installation considerations (newbuilding and retrofit).
  • Step-by-step guide to complying with the Convention.
  • A review of all providers and systems.


Captain Peter Lundahl Rasmussen, Senior Marine Technical Officer for BIMCO commented: “Among the major challenges for owners preparing for compliance, with the forthcoming Ballast Water Management requirements, is how to ensure a smooth transition to compliance and continued profitability in trade for their fleets - either by using alternative means of compliance or, in the main, by selecting adequate and compliant Ballast Water Management Systems suitable for the individual ships and trades."

He continues: "The Step-by-Step Guide to Ballast Water Management is without doubt a fully up-to-date and invaluable tool to aid owners in the search for unbiased and comprehensive information regarding the Ballast Water Management regulations and compliance.”

The 'Step-by-Step Guide to Ballast Water Management' is available to pre-order via:
