IMO Convention on Ballast Water Management Ratified - What's Next?

Last week in Law at the Waterline, we celebrated the ratification of the IMO convention on ballast water management, an event we described as “a major milestone for enhanced protection of our oceans and a profound business driver for marine-environmental technology.”  As we progress towards the convention’s permanent implementation date of September 8, 2017, Law at the Waterline will have a series of posts tracking this process and progress of implementation, including type approval and other standards for treatment technologies and developments expected in the U.S. Coast Guard’s promulgation of its requirements. We begin the series this week with some background information in a post by Grace Denny, a student at Boston College.
