The Ballast Water Management Convention (2004) requires all ships to implement a ballast water management plan; ships must carry a ballast water record book (BWRB) and complete ballast water management procedures to a given standard.

This BWRB provides the means to record all the information necessary for compliance with the BWM Convention. Split into three sections, the record book provides detailed and step by step instructions for completing record tables on ‘Vessel Details’, ‘Routine Ballast Water Records’ and ‘Non-Routine Ballast Water Records’. Sample pages, illustrating example routine and non-routine ballast water operations, and plan views of ballast tanks that can be adapted to suit all ship types are included.



Section 1 – Vessel Details


Section 2 – Routine Ballast Water Records


Section 3 – Non-Routine Ballast Water Records
