The My BWMP app aims to speed up and make the BWM process easier

Bureau Veritas has launched a new e-business solution to help the shipping industry meet the Ballast Water Management deadline for certificates and approved plans by September.

The My Ballast Water Management Plan’ (My BWMP) app provides ship owners with immediate online quotations, the ability to pay online, to submit documents online and receive approved BWM plans.

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.”

BV said that the main benefit to My BWMP is it’s easy and quick to use. It allows the 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.

It also provides technical, regulatory and commercial information and content related to the BWM Convention.

In addition, My BWMP enables Bureau Veritas the ability to manage the high volumes of requests to be processed within a very short time-frame.
