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.
