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.

    The UK P&I Clubs

    Marine pollution has always been in the spotlight but now, even more attention is being paid to the impact of sewage on the environment. Strict regulations and an increasing focus on compliance is having a big effect on shipping.

    A recent bulletin issued by UK P&I Club has highlighted the issue. It reveals that detentions due to sewage are on the rise at an alarming rate.

    The bulletin concerns recent data released by the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) which shows the extent of the problem. So far in 2019, the most common reason for the detention of their vessels was sewage-related.
