This is a legislation driven requirement under the ILO Maritime Labour Convention 2006. Suitable control schemes with adequate marine water testing and monitoring will aid with the compliance of the current IHR (2005), ILO 178 (2009) and ILO MLC (2006), which enters into force from January 2012. These products provide real time analysis and simple to perform tests needing no specialist training. Look here for a single convenient solution and to avoid potential Port State inspection problems.
