2nd IMarEST Ballast Water Technology Asia Conference
Impending Ratification: Challenges, Concerns and Solutions

The ratification of the Ballast Water Convention and its associated implications represents the biggest change and challenge to face the shipping industry in more than a generation. With the recent spate ratifications, entry into force moves ever closer, with a date towards the end of 2016 a real possibility. Despite this a great deal of uncertainty remains over a number of issues: IMO vs USCG regulations, approval of systems, testing and compliance as well as planning necessary vessel retrofit, to name a few. With ratification finally expected in the next 12 months, this event will address these key issues and more through case study presentations, interactive panel discussions and workshops.

Conference highlights include:

  • Learn how to plan and execute the right ballast water strategy for your company
  • The shipping industries response to developments in ballast water regulation and their implications
  • A review of ballast water treatment system type approval methods
  • Discover how far ballast water treatment system providers are progressing towards gaining approval
