Lloyd’s Register (LR) has been approved as an independent laboratory (IL) and will begin testing of Ballast Water Treatment Systems (BWTS) to meet the United States Coast Guard (USCG) requirements. The USCG regulations for the approval of BWTS came into effect in 2012. All vessels that trade in US waters will be required to have an approved BWTS from the first dry-docking after 2016.
