Let the BWM games begin
In the October 2016 edition of Maritime Reporter and Engineering News, you can find my article entitled "Let the BWM games begin". The 2004 Ballast Water Management Convention finally received sufficient ratifications and will enter into force on 8 September 2017.

Things have suddenly gotten very interesting.
