Ecochlor’s attainment of global regulatory type approvals and our perseverance in bringing a quality, reliable BWMS to market in the marine industry, highlights our continued commitment to test the efficacy of our system to the highest standards available over a timespan of almost two decades.

Regulatory APPROVALS

Ecochlor has IMO G8 (2011, 2017) / IMO BWMS Code (2020) Type Approval and G9 Final Approval as well as USCG Type Approval (2017). During Ecochlor’s USCG Type Approval amendment process, minor updates and improvements were made to aspects such as documentation, available filter models, and control system software.

Ecochlor worked with DNV GL as the Recognized Organization for the Norwegian Maritime Authority (NMA) to complete harmonization of the USCG approved system with the existing IMO Type Approval and IMO’s BWMS Code (i.e. ‘revised G8’). 

Currently, Ecochlor has Class Approvals from ABS, BV, LR, RMRS, DNV GL, KR and Flag State Type Approvals from IMO Cyprus and IMO Hellenic.
