PILOTAGE PRE-PLANNING GUIDE
7.1. Ballast water
Please observe that all The Baltic countries are following The International Convention
for the Control and Management of Ships' Ballast Water and Sediments
This Convention states that all ballast water should be changed before entering the
North Sea and the Baltic, or treated in a ballast water treatment plant.
Despite not acting as a servant of the Danish authorities, the Pilot is required by law
to report any non-adherence to the regulations to the relevant authorities.
Ballast Water Treatment Convention will enter into force by September 2017.
