Chapter Summary

The GloBallast Legislative Review Project is an essential component of the comprehensive Global Ballast Water Management Programme (GloBallast Programme). The Brazilian GloBallast Legislative Review was designed to identify issues, provide legal references, and develop recommendations for the most effective means of national implementation of IMO Resolution A.868 (20) and of the BWM Convention. The Brazilian national law with respect to the control and management of ships ballast water exchange was deeply influenced by the international legal framework dealing with protection and conservation of the marine environment. The Brazilian legal system has drawn on the major international treaties related to this issue, and the country has assumed a domestic and international commitment towards the adoption of the substantive and regulatory standards set out in various international conventions. The chapter also presents answers by the Brazilian local legal consultant on six key issues.
