Sewage Water Test Kit
Sewage testing legislation was introduced as the discharge of raw sewage can create a health hazard, cause damage to the marine environment, while in coastal areas sewage can lead to oxygen depletion and obvious visual pollution.
MARPOL Annex IV, (resolution MEPC.115(51)), entered into force on 27th September 2008. It applies to ships on international voyages which are either 400gt and greater or less than 400gt when certified to carry more than 15 persons, which includes passengers and crew.
