The NBIC has seen an increased number of PDF Ballast Water Management Reporting forms (BWMR) that are corrupted and unable to be opened, thus requiring rejection. To ensure that your submission is processed, 1) please download a new BWMR from the NBIC, 2) make sure to download it first to your computer instead of opening in your browser, and 3) use only Adobe Acrobat Pro or Adobe Reader version 9 or higher to complete your BWMR.[Read more...] about Important information on how to submit a Ballast Water Management Form properly
