IMO Secretary-General welcomes revised shipping industry stance on ballast water

Date: 11/02/2015

IMO Secretary-General Koji Sekimizu has welcomed the reconsideration by the International Chamber of Shipping (ICS) of its position towards the ratification by Governments of the International Convention for the Control and Management of Ships’ Ballast Water and Sediments, 2004 (BWM Convention).

In its press release of 17 December 2014, ICS stated that it will “no longer actively discourage those governments that have not yet done so from ratifying the Convention, in order that it might enter into force sooner rather than later so that amendments to the Convention, which the industry has requested, can then be adopted and implemented by governments as soon as possible.”
