Description: This Guide for Ballast Water Exchange is provided for the use of designers, builders, owners, and operators of vessels classed with ABS and specifies the requirements for obtaining the optional classification notation Ballast Water Exchange (BWE). The BWE notation identifies a level of compliance with the applicable regulations contained in the IMO “International Convention for the Control and Management of Ships’ Ballast Water and Sediments, 2004”, as well as those IMO Guidelines referenced in the Convention addressing ballast water exchange.
While the Convention has not yet entered into force, many port States, such as Brazil, Canada and the United States have established national regulations mandating the exchange of ballast water, together with evidence to support that the exchange has taken place (ballast water records).
This Guide is to be used in conjunction with other Rules published by ABS and IMO guidelines.
