MEPC 56 - Environmental issues

Ballast water, biofouling and ship recycling were all discussed and considered by the IMO’s Marine Environmental Committee (MEPC) this week (9-13 July 2007) but with an extensive agenda and large debates on ballast water and ship recycling the meeting has been delayed in reaching many of its conclusions.


INTERTANKO’s team will be covering the matters as they arise on Friday afternoon with a full report on the outcome of the deliberations in next week’s Weekly NEWS.
