As the IMO BWM Convention draws closer to ratification, shipowners continue to seek out essential ballast water management guidance. Many of them will do so during the 10th annual BWMTech, December 8 – 10, 2014, in London.
On day one of the conference, Jim Cosman (Trojan Marinex Market Manager) will be a panelist on the debate titled ‘Is the IMO type approval process robust enough?’. He, alongside fellow panelists, will be discussing several issues, including:
- IMO vs. the US Coast Guard (USCG): What are the technical differences?
- Will an IMO type approved system be compliant upon enforcement?
- Inconsistencies in the interpretation of G8
- Transparency in BWMS Type Approval
We are looking forward to participating in this year’s conference, and hope to see you there.
