The Northeast-Midwest Institute would like to announce the release of its report on the international Ballast Discharge Monitoring Device Workshop held August 12-16, 2002 at the Marrowstone Island Marine Field Station, Olympic Peninsula, Washington.
The report titled “Summary and Findings of the Ballast Discharge Monitoring Device Workshop” is available from the Institute’s website at http://www.nemw.org/MarrowstoneReport.pdf
The goal of the Workshop was to assess existing and emerging analytical tools (technologies and techniques) for their potential to support regulatory evaluations of ballast discharge associated with the range of standards under discussion. It is hoped that this information will assist policy-makers and regulators to understand the extent to which analytical tools may support the various types of standards and regulatory activities relevant to ballast water discharge regulation.
