This briefing analyses the impact assessment accompanying the legislative proposal of the Commission to establish the European Maritime Single Window environment (EMSWe). The goal of the EMSWe is to decrease and harmonise throughout the EU, the reporting formalities and obligations of the maritime operators when calling at ports in the EU. The IA provides the overview of the main problems of the existing legislation and the policy options considered by the Commission to deal with them. Despite some minor inconsistencies, the IA provides a solid analysis of the current problems related to reporting obligations of ships when calling at a port.

Port reception facilities for the delivery of waste from ships

22-03-2018

This note seeks to provide an initial analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of the European Commission's impact assessment (IA) (consisting of part 1 and part 2), accompanying the above-mentioned proposal, submitted on 16 January 2018 and referred to Parliament's Committee on Transport and Tourism.

This note seeks to provide an initial analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of the European Commission's impact assessment (IA) (consisting of part 1 and part 2), accompanying the above-mentioned proposal, submitted on 16 January 2018 and referred to Parliament's Committee on Transport and Tourism. Ship-generated waste, such as oily waste, sewage and garbage, poses a significant threat to the marine environment (IA part 1, p.3). The current legal framework laying down the rules applicable to ship-generated waste is Directive 2000/59/EC (hereafter referred to as 'the directive'). The directive is based on the provisions of the International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships (the MARPOL Convention), which was developed by the International Maritime Organization (IMO)) and regulates discharges at sea. The directive strengthens the regime established under MARPOL through a port-based approach, focusing on operations in ports, including 1) development of waste reception and handling plans in ports; 2) advance notification of waste by ships before entry into port; 3) mandatory delivery of ship-generated waste; 4) payment of fees by ships for the reception of their ship-generated waste; 5) exemptions for ships engaged in scheduled traffic; 6) inspections to verify compliance with the delivery requirements; and 7) development of an information and monitoring system.

Søtransport: strategisk tilgang

01-02-2018

EU-bestemmelserne om søtransport handler hovedsagelig om anvendelsen af princippet om fri udveksling af tjenesteydelser og korrekt anvendelse af konkurrencereglerne, samtidig med at der sikres et højt sikkerhedsniveau samt gode arbejdsforhold og miljøstandarder.

En integreret havpolitik

01-01-2018

EU's integrerede havpolitik er en helhedsorienteret tilgang til alle havrelaterede EU-politikker. Den integrerede havpolitik er baseret på tanken om, at Unionen ved at koordinere sine politikker kan få større udbytte af havene og oceanerne med færre miljøindvirkninger, og den omfatter så forskellige områder som fiskeri og akvakultur, skibsfart og havne, havmiljø, havforskning, offshoreenergi, skibsbygning og havrelaterede sektorer, havovervågning, turisme ved og på havet, beskæftigelse, udvikling ...

The liberalisation of EU port services

10-03-2016

Serving as access points to Europe, the European Union's approximately 1 200 seaports are crucial both for its transport sector and its competitiveness. They also have significant potential for creating jobs and attracting investors. The European Commission plans to redress the huge disparities in performance levels by modernising the port services offered by the EU’s 329 main seaports. The reform is aimed at eliminating unfair competition, guaranteeing a level playing field and improving the commercial ...

Serving as access points to Europe, the European Union's approximately 1 200 seaports are crucial both for its transport sector and its competitiveness.

The European Commission plans to redress the huge disparities in performance levels by modernising the port services offered by the EU’s 329 main seaports. The reform is aimed at eliminating unfair competition, guaranteeing a level playing field and improving the commercial efficiency of ports. Two previous attempts to liberalise port services (in 2001 and 2004) provoked controversy, particularly regarding their social/labour market aspects, and were rejected by the European Parliament. The latest initiative combines a legislative and a 'soft' approach. The previously contentious cargo handling and passenger services will not be opened up to the market through legislation. Instead, the Commission is focusing on establishing a clear framework for market access to port services and common rules on the transparency of public funding for ports and the charges for users. The 'soft' approach comprises an action plan and the launch of sectoral social dialogue. This briefing updates an earlier edition, of 1 February 2016, PE 573.963.

Market access to port services

01-03-2016

In a third attempt to liberalise the European Union's port services, in 2013 the European Commission proposed a regulation aimed at eliminating unfair competition and improving the commercial efficiency of the major EU seaports. While establishing a framework for market access to port services, and common rules on both the transparency of public funding for ports and charges for users, the proposal does not affect Member States' social and employment rules.

Maritime safety remains high on the political agenda for the European Union, being the driving force behind the adoption of the three Maritime Safety Packages and including it as one of the main themes of the Parliament's recommendations for the EU’s maritime transport policy until 2018.This study provides an analysis of the effectiveness of the measures included in the Third Maritime Safety Package. It illustrates (through simplified intervention logic tables), the extent to which the anticipated effects have materialised and the challenges encountered during the first years of implementation.The report concludes that the majority of the anticipated short- and mid-term effects have materialised, while the assessment of the longer term effects led to a more cautious conclusion.

Liberalisation of EU port services: state of play

30-10-2014

Serving as access points to the continent, Europe’s approximately 1 200 seaports are crucial to both the European transport sector and the competitiveness of the European Union (EU). They also have significant potential for creating jobs and attracting investors. There are huge disparities in performance levels between the various EU ports, however, and this has resulted in traffic diversions, longer journeys by sea and by land, and, consequently, higher CO2 emissions.

Serving as access points to the continent, Europe’s approximately 1 200 seaports are crucial to both the European transport sector and the competitiveness of the European Union (EU). They also have significant potential for creating jobs and attracting investors. There are huge disparities in performance levels between the various EU ports, however, and this has resulted in traffic diversions, longer journeys by sea and by land, and, consequently, higher CO2 emissions. The European Commission plans to resolve this situation through its latest proposal to liberalise port services in the EU’s 319 main seaports.
