Ballast Water Management (BWM)
Assisting shipowners to seamlessly implement the BWM Convention
Invasive aquatic species present a major threat to marine ecosystems, and shipping is a primary path for these harmful organisms to spread. The International Convention for the Control and Management of Ships Ballast Water & Sediments (BWM Convention) aims to limit the spread of invasive species by requiring management plans and treatment systems on all ships that carry ballast water.
