    logo11 Ballast water mismanagement

    In the November 2015 edition of Maritime Reporter and Engineering News, you can find my article entitled "Ballast water mismanagement". In the article, I discuss the impact of a recent appellate court decision ruling that the 2013 Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Vessel General Permit (VGP) is arbitrary, capricious, and not in accordance with the law. The EPA was directed to rewrite the VGP, but the current program remains in effect until replaced.
