Statutory Alert: Status of the Ballast Water Management Convention – criteria for entry into force not yet reached
Applicability: All shipowners and operators

The International Maritime Organization (IMO) has completed its calculations of the shipping tonnage of the states that have ratified the Ballast Water Management Convention, and concluded that the conditions for initiating entry into force have not been met. An additional 0.44% of global tonnage is needed to meet the required 35% threshold. 

This means that the Ballast Water Management Convention will not enter into force on 24 November, 2016, as predicted.

We will issue further Class News as the status of the Convention progresses.
