237 - 03/02 - Ballast and Sewage Problems - Ukraine
The fine for exceeding the chlorine limit was only $40 USD, however, when it was discovered that the vessel was pumping sewage overboard, and additional fine of $5000 USD was imposed.We would advise Members trading to the Ukraine to get confirmation from their agents of local sanitary and ballast regulations before their vessels arrive in order to best advise the Master. It appears that some sort of
"fine" will be inevitable, but with a little care, these can be minimised.
