Guidelines for risk and impact assessment of the discharge water from Exhaust Gas Cleaning Systems (EGCS) were approved at the IMO’s Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC) 78th session. The guidelines provide information on the recommended methodology for risk and impact assessment that member states should follow when considering local or regional regulations concerning EGCS discharge water.  The guidance also includes best practices for the delivery of EGCS residues to port reception facilities to assist both ship operators and port states in assuring the proper management and disposal of EGCS residues and stored discharge water from EGCS into port reception facilities.
