Reading Ballast Water Convention

Shipboard Efficacy Testing

Assurance that your Ballast Water Treatment System (BWTS) meets regulatory discharge standards.

Each BWTS installation can vary and type approval is not a guarantee that an installed system will meet ballast water performance standards.

The Ballast Water Centre (BWC) provides independent and impartial shipboard testing of your installed system(s). Our team of experts visits your vessel(s) in ports to sample and test discharged ballast water to assess efficacy against the IMO D-2 ballast water performance standard and for US EPA Vessel General Permit (VGP) requirements.
