06-2009: Ballast water (reminder)

No Master shall discharge water ballast into the harbour without the permission of the Harbour Master except in the case of an emergency in order to ensure the safety of his vessel and shall inform the Harbour Master as soon as reasonably practical.

A Master shall not allow his vessel to enter the Authority’s area unless the ballast tanks of the vessel have been flushed through before entry in such a way as to ensure so far as reasonably practical that non-native marine organisms are not introduced into the Authority’s area.
