Why is Water Testing Important?

The Marine Industry requires routine water testing for multiple purposes.

The Marine Labour Convention requires that seafarers have access to clean potable water for drinking, cooking, and other purposes. In recent years, IMO regulations have become stricter, requiring that the water on board vessels are free of harmful marine organisms and contaminants and do not cause any damage when discharged to the sea.

Viswa offers various water testing services and assessment of onboard machinery to ensure that treatments meet statutory approval criteria and protect the ship staff, marine community, and the environment.

The Value of Water Testing

Water testing is mostly driven by statutory requirements to protect the environment and public health. At The Viswa Group, we understand the stress our customers endure to meet and keep up with complex regulations.

Our water testing services guarantee that:

  • Ship staff and community are protected from illness, infections, and any
    serious harm.
  • The highest quality standards and statutory requirements are met.
  • Water on board is free of harmful marine organisms and contaminants
    such as oil, gas, etc.
  • Discharged wastewater and ballast water do not cause any damage to
    the environment and the marine community.
