RINA Maritime Office Training Manager Enrico Ursomando explained the International  Convention  for  the  Control  and  Management  of  Ship’s Ballast Water and Sediments, which goes into effect on Sept. 8.

Other parts of the meeting included a technical discussion of new builds, discussion about MLC and the 2010 Manila Amendments, application of VAT, and a fashion show of Floating Life’s newest line of crew uniforms.
