Ballast Water Management – The world leader in testing, inspection and verification services, Bureau Veritas, has launched a new e-commerce solution to help the Shipping Industry with the Ballast Water Management deadline for approved certificates and plans scheduled for last September 8.

The application consists of a fast, effective and direct platform, called “My ballast water management plan” (My BWMP).
