Compliance

All applicable vessels will need to maintain the system in line with the effluent standards or risk detention. The Martek Marine Effluent Test Kit provides simple tests for Permanganate Value, pH, Suspended Solids, Probable BOD, COD and TOC. The kit provides all the necessary tests to guarantee compliance for all commercial vessels. Crews who carry out regular testing will be able to take corrective action which will keep efficiency high whilst keeping downtime to a minimum and reducing costs. Our spares service means you only buy the full kit once and then replace what you use. This means you’ll reduce waste whilst reducing costs.

Legislation

Sewage testing legislation was introduced as the discharge of raw sewage can create a health hazard, cause damage to the marine environment and, in coastal areas, can lead to oxygen depletion and obvious visual pollution. MARPOL Annex IV, (resolution MEPC.115(51)), came 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.

MARPOL Annex IV

MEPC.2(VI):

  • Coliforms – up to 250 CFU/100ml
  • Total Suspended Solids (TSS) (onboard) – up to 100 mg/l
  • Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD) – up to 50 mg/l

MEPC.159(55):

  • Coliforms – up to 100 CFU/100ml
  • Total Suspended Solids (TSS) – up to 35 mg/l
  • Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD) – up to 25 mg/l
  • Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) – up to 125 mg/l
  • pH – between 6.0 – 8.5
  • Chlorine (Free) – up to 0.5 mg/l
