According to the revised guidelines, BWMS performance will have to be tested in different water salinities (fresh, brackish, and marine). Another revision introduces changes to the guidelines regarding self-monitoring. It stipulates that, in the future, BWMSs will require systems to monitor, record, and store sufficient data to verify correct operation over more than a 24-month period.
The revised guidelines are more detailed and prescriptive. Additional topics will be discussed at a future MEPC meeting. For more information—and for the full list of revisions—follow this link: http://bit.ly/2fVMdIG
