Regarding MEPC 71, Mr. Mouawad commented that IMO focused on the practical implementation of the Convention, more than just high level policy making which is an interesting turn. He considers that the new BWM dates allow considerable time for ship owners to make their decisions but also for vendors to obtain necessary USCG Type Approvals.
