In the autumn of 2021, BIMCO conducted a survey on biofouling to gather information from the industry with regard to anti-fouling systems (AFS) and the factors that trigger an underwater inspection or in-water cleaning. The results are out and provide useful insight into the biofouling management of shipowners, ship operators and ship managers. It also contains an analysis of user experiences, including the use of anti-fouling systems (AFS). The results of the survey will be fed into the work on biofouling management at the International Maritime Organization (IMO).
