Vietnam National Train-Implement Course

Hai Phong, Vietnam
Attended by nominated officials, this national delivery will assist in the implementation phase of the Control of Harmful Anti-Fouling Systems on Ships (AFS) Convention and the Ballast Water Management (BWM) Convention.

Held at the Maritime College No.1, the training achieved its objectives to deliver the tools to the participants to continue the drafting of the new regulations and to support the full and effective implementation of AFS and BWM Conventions in Vietnam.

Participants, who were selected by the Vietnamese Government, are either directly involved in the drafting process of the above legislation or are involved during the public participation process. Consequently, the knowledge gained by the participants during this national training is applied via their comments and inputs on the respective pieces of draft legislation.

The drafts produced by the participants were consolidated into a single document and it is expected that the National Task Force and the National Consultants will continue to work on the draft legislation initiated during the training by the attendees of the Vietnam National Train-Implement Course.
