Certification and operational compliance are two very different things… And with the compliance deadline upon us, shipowners and operators are understandably concerned about enforcement and the potential repercussions if regulatory requirements are not met.
This speaks of a need for greater clarity around:
system selection, testing regimes – from sampling kits to Port State Control, international standards and hidden costs.
The lively discussions that followed took in these key themes and provided real insights into practical measures that anticipate and mitigate the risks that arise when Ballast Water Treatment Technology is beyond certification.
