USCG updates on ballast water treatment systems


The US Coast Guard issued a bulletin to clarify NVIC 01-18 and Ballast Water Management System (BWMS) compliance date extensions. No extensions will be granted to a vessel with an installed alternate management system (AMS) and no extensions will be granted to install an AMS. However, the Coast Guard will consider granting extensions to vessels that intend to install a BWMS that is expected to receive type approval in the near future. There are six Coast Guard type approved BWMS at this time and USCG has received its ninth application for type approval for the BALPURE BWMS.
