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.
Ecochlor has both IMO G8 Type Approval (2011, 2017) 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.
After USCG Type Approval, Ecochlor worked with DNV GL as the Recognized Organization for the Norwegian Maritime Authority (NMA) to harmonize all aspects of the USCG approved system with the existing IMO Type Approval, which was completed in early 2018. Currently, Ecochlor is working with DNV GL and NMA to obtain IMO G8 Type Approval in accordance with IMO’s BWMS Code (i.e. ‘revised G8’).
Currently, Ecochlor has Class Approvals from ABS, BV, NK, RMRS, DNV GL and Flag State Type Approvals from IMO Liberia, IMO Cyprus and IMO Hellenic.
