This publication provides practical information to Governments, particularly those of developing countries, Administrations, ship owners, port State control authorities, environmental agencies and other stakeholders on the implications of ratifying and enforcing the Ballast Water Management Convention.

This publication includes extensive guidance on implementing each regulation of the Ballast Water Management Convention, from general applicability to exceptions and exemptions. Consideration is also given to crew training and personnel administration. It should be noted that this is a reference document and, for legal purposes, the authentic text of the Convention should always be consulted.

A??s a specialized agency of the United Nations, IMO is the global standard setting authority for the safety, security and environmental performance of international shipping. Its main role is to create a regulatory framework for the shipping industry that is fair and effective, universally adopted and universally implemented.

In other words, its role is to create a level playing field so that ship operators cannot address their financial issues by simply cutting corners and compromising on safety, security and environmental performance. This approach also encourages innovation and efficiency.

Shipping is a truly international industry, and it can only operate effectively if the regulations and standards are themselves agreed, adopted and implemented on an international basis. And IMO is the forum at which this process takes place.
