Statutory Alert: U.S. Coast Guard Ballast Water Management Discharge Standards – applications for extension of the implementation schedule
Applicability: Vessels equipped with ballast water tanks and operating in U.S. waters, unless exempt from the U.S. Coast Guard ballast water management regulations

The U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) has advised that vessels with less than 12 months to comply with the USCG Ballast Water Management Discharge Standards can now request an extension to the implementation schedule. Effectively, this means an extension to the date by which the vessel must install a treatment system.
 
This change is not currently stated in existing USCG regulations. Vessels may apply for an extension request at any time within the 12 month period, but we recommend that applications are submitted as soon as possible. 
 
Lloyd’s Register can help clients prepare requests for extension of the implementation schedule. Please contact marine-environment@lr.org for more information.
 
For more information on the USCG compliance dates, please see our National Ballast Water Requirements document here
