EGCSA Guide – Scrubber Water Sampling Point Specification
This Guide aims to facilitate the taking of water samples for consistent laboratory analysis and reporting of the quality of overboard discharges by providing a standard for scrubber system sampling points
- The configuration of a simple manual valve arrangement to obtain representative samples from the centre line of a pipe.
- Where the sampling points should be positioned in open, closed and hybrid scrubber systems
- How the sampling points should be orientated on pipework
- Other considerations for safe, convenient and uniform sampling
The Guide is free to download.

Ship Guide – Scrubber Water Sample Analysis Programme
In partnership with Euroshore, EGCSA has undertaken 2 scrubber water analysis programmes for the European Sustainable Shipping Forum (ESSF).
Based on the experience of sailing with vessels to take samples for the first programme, EGCSA has produced a practical guide to scrubber water sampling for ship staff, which has been used during the second programme.
The Ship Guide is freely available to download and use as a model for other scrubber water sample analysis programmes. It is focussed on taking samples for analysis of EPA 16 priority PAHs (polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons) and selected total metals. This version is non laboratory specific.
