BWMC is effective since Sep 2017, but, there are still grey areas which need clarification, such as the important issue of IOPP Certificate recoupling.

New BWMC dates push forward D-2 standard not the exchange

Jad Mouawad, CEO at Mouawad Consulting, clarifies important issues with respect to the BWM Convention implementation after MEPC71 and says that from 8 September 2017, industry will officially start protecting the marine environment through exchange. 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.

Jad Mouawad, Mouawad Consulting AS, says that the shipping industry must become a leader in green technology by voluntarily working on reducing its environmental footprint. However he says, this is a far reaching scenario taking into account that 2017 is expected to be a continuation of the regulatory trend of 2016.
