5th IMarEST Ballast Water Technology Conference
Impending Ratification: Challenges, Concerns and Solutions

Following on from the successful 4th edition of the IMarEST Ballast Water Technology Conference, this year’s event sees the convention on the cusp of ratification, with a strong belief that the convention will enter into force late in 2016.

The Ballast Water Convention and its associated implications represents the biggest change and challenge to face the shipping industry in more than a generation. Despite this a great deal of uncertainty and questions remain over a number of key issues: IMO vs USCG regulations, approval of systems, testing and compliance as well as planning necessary vessel retrofit, to name a few. With ratification 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:

  • Discover the latest developments in the regulatory framework
  • Hear the shipping industries response to developments in ballast water regulation and their implications for the industry
  • Assess retrofitting options for your fleet
  • Port State control - testing and compliance. Find out what you need to know
  • Learn how to plan and execute the right ballast water strategy for your company

Who should attend:

  • Ship Owners, operators & management companies
  • Marine superintendents and fleet maintenance chiefs
  • Marine Engineers, Scientists & Technologists
  • OEMs & Suppliers of Ballast Water Systems
  • Shipyard and dry dock owners
  • Contractors and consultants
