Ships and marine technology — Risk assessment on anti-fouling systems on ships — Part 2: Marine environmental risk assessment method for anti-fouling systems on ships using biocidally active substances

ISO 13073-2:2013 specifies a risk assessment method that protects the marine environment from the potential negative impacts of anti-fouling systems intentionally using biocidally active substances applied to a ship during its service life. This method can also be modified for use in freshwater environments.

ISO 13073-2:2013 does not provide specific test methods for evaluating the hazards nor recommends usage restrictions for certain anti-fouling systems. It also does not provide an efficacy-evaluation method of the anti-fouling system using a specific substance.
