Can you comply without compromising? Every ballast water treatment system has its limits. (No matter what suppliers say!) So what does a type approval certificate really show you? And what are the real demands your system will face? Join us to discuss the different criteria found in the rules. We’ll explain what you see on paper – and what it really means at sea.
