Annex of the Convention

Annex – Section B “Management and Control Requirements for Ships”:

Ships must:

implement and have on board a Ballast Water Management Plan approved by the Administration (Regulation B-1)

maintain a Ballast Water Log Book (Regulation B-2) to record ballast water movements (uptake, treatment, exchange, circulation, discharge)

Under the BWM Convention, the ships should adopt measures for ballast water management, as stated in Regulation B-3 “Ballast Water Management for Ships

The specific requirements for ballast water exchange are contained in Regulation B-4 “Ballast Water Exchange”.

Ballast water management by Lloyd’s Registry

When the IMO’s Ballast Water Management Convention enters into force it will impose a number of requirements on ship owners and operators, and more recently the USCG has also introduced regulations. For many ships the most practical way to comply with these new regulations will be to install a ballast water treatment system. However other alternative compliance options may be suitable for certain ship types and trades. Our consultancy services and online guidance can help you understand the regulations and support you in deciding how best to respond.

Your challenge

The uncertainty in knowing when the regulations on ballast water management will enter-into-force and how to plan for it mean it is difficult to make decisions to prepare your ships ahead of compliance. To add to this, for vessels which trade in US waters, there are requirements to comply with US national regulations on ballast water management.
