Bureau Veritas launches ‘My BWMP’ - a new e-business solution to help the shipping industry meet the Ballast Water Management deadline

July 12, 2017

D-1 Plan Approvals available online bring e-business to the class business

Neuilly-sur-Seine, France, July 12, 2017 – As the Ballast Water Management (BWM) Convention’s D1 September 8th deadline looms, ship owners must secure International BWM Certificates and approved BWM plans for their ships. Bureau Veritas is addressing the challenge with a fast, effective and straightforward platform - ‘My Ballast Water Management Plan’ (My BWMP).

My BWMP provides ship owners with immediate online quotations, the ability to pay online, to submit their documents and then receive their approved BWM plans. My BWMP also enables Bureau Veritas to manage the high volumes to be processed within a very short time-frame. My BWMP is easy and it provides a rapid process for entering the required details for individual ships or fleets to secure a tailor-made quotation and enable the required documents to be submitted by a client shipowner or ship manager.

Philippe Donche-Gay, President of Bureau Veritas Marine & Offshore said; “We wanted to provide owners and managers with a fast, practical resource to help them to meet the 8 September deadline with confidence and help ensure that we can manage the volume of work within the necessary time-frame. My BWMP brings e-business to the class business and we are also now looking at how it can be extended to provide further services giving access to our expertise in other areas.”

My BWMP will also provide technical, regulatory and commercial information and content related to the BWM Convention.
