The China Classification Society sets and approves engineering standards for ships played a key role in the guideline-setting for the convention by providing China's unique angle to the treaty's deliberations.

Wang Huifang, senior engineer at the Rules and Technology Center of China Classification Society (CCS), said that there are some special waters in China like the Yangtze River estuary and Yangshan deep water port, which has a lot amount of suspended sediments in these waters.

"This brings more challenge to the performance of ballast water management system on board. So CCS proposed to International Maritime Organization that this challenging water need more attention during the research and development of ballast water management system and ships operation," said Wang.
