Amendment  1

Proposal for a regulation

Recital 4 a (new)

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

 

(4a) The Agency's work on the prevention of pollution and on pollution response preparedness is not just financially beneficial but also adds non-monetary value. Given the risk of the devastating ecological impact and huge economic costs of possible pollution incidents, as well as the socio-economic impact of such incidents on other sectors, such as tourism and fisheries, sufficient investment in the Agency is crucial.

Amendment  2

Proposal for a regulation

Recital 9

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

(9) The Agency should play an active role in maintaining and developing further the satellite imagery service for surveillance, the early detection of pollution and identification of the responsible ships or oil and gas installations. This system should improve the availability of data and the effectiveness of the response to pollution.

(9) The Agency should play an active role in maintaining and developing further the satellite imagery service for surveillance, the early detection of pollution and identification of the responsible ships or oil and gas installations. This system should improve the availability of data and the effectiveness of the response to pollution, and should speed up both the initial response and the provision of appropriate support facilities.

Justification

Being effective also means shorter response times and swifter provision of the relevant resources, in order to minimise the pollution and its repercussions.

Amendment  3

Proposal for a regulation

Recital 11

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

(11) In order to ensure thorough implementation, the Agency should be provided with a viable and cost-effective system for financing, in particular, its operational assistance to the affected States.

(11) In order to ensure thorough implementation of the Action Plans, the Agency should be provided with a viable and cost-effective system for financing, in particular, the provision of operational assistance to the affected States.

Amendment  4

Proposal for a regulation

Recital 12

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

(12) Financial security should therefore be provided for the funding of the tasks entrusted to the Agency in the field of pollution response and associated actions on the basis of a multiannual commitment. The annual amounts of the Union contribution should be determined by the Budgetary Authority in accordance with the annual budgetary procedure.

(12) Financial security should therefore be provided for the funding of the tasks entrusted to the Agency in the field of pollution response and associated actions on the basis of a multiannual commitment. The size of that multiannual commitment needs to take account of the expansion of the Agency's remit and the extension of the geographical scope of its response activities. The annual amounts of the Union contribution should be determined by the Budgetary Authority in accordance with the annual budgetary procedure.

Justification

The Agency’s multiannual budget needs to be large enough for it to be able to meet its responsibilities, which were extended by Regulation (EU) No 100/2013. The budget therefore needs to reflect the real needs and challenges.

Amendment  5

Proposal for a regulation

Recital 13

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

(13) The amounts to be committed for the funding of pollution response should cover the period from 1 January 2014 to 31 December 2020, in line with the new multiannual financial framework. A financial envelope covering the same period should therefore be provided.

(13) The amounts to be committed for the funding of pollution response should cover the period from 1 January 2014 to 31 December 2020, in line with the new multiannual financial framework. It is therefore necessary to allocate more resources to the Agency so as to take account of its new tasks.

Amendment  6

Proposal for a regulation

Recital 14 a (new)

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

 

(14a) Recognising the need for the Agency to be financially secure, and independently of the Commission's multiannual financing, the Union and the Member States should implement mechanisms whereby the financial costs borne by the Agency may be recovered from third parties in respect of goods, services or labour provided by the Agency.

Amendment  7

Proposal for a regulation

Article 2 – point b

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

(b) ‘hazardous and noxious substances’ means any substance other than oil which, if introduced into the marine environment, is likely to create hazards to human health, to harm living resources and marine life, to damage amenities or to interfere with other legitimate uses of the sea, as established by the Protocol on Preparedness, Response and Cooperation to Pollution Incidents by Hazardous and Noxious Substances, 2000.

(b) ‘hazardous and noxious substances’ means any substance other than oil, including dispersants, which, if introduced into the marine environment, is likely to create hazards to human health, to harm living resources and marine life, to damage amenities or to interfere with other legitimate uses of the sea, as established by the Protocol on Preparedness, Response and Cooperation to Pollution Incidents by Hazardous and Noxious Substances, 2000, of the International Maritime Organisation.;

Amendment  8

Proposal for a regulation

Article 2 – point b a (new)

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

 

(ba) ‘oil and gas installation’ means a stationary fixed or mobile facility, or a combination of facilities permanently interconnected by bridges or other structures, used for offshore oil or gas operations or in connection with those operations; this includes mobile offshore drilling units only if they are stationed in offshore waters for drilling, production or other activities associated with offshore oil or gas operations, as well as infrastructure and facilities used to bring the oil and gas onshore and to onshore terminals;

Justification

The rapporteur’s definition needs to be expanded to include the facilities used to bring the oil and gas onshore and to onshore oil and gas terminals.

Amendment  9

Proposal for a regulation

Article 2 – point b b (new)

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

 

(bb) "offshore oil and gas operations" means all activities associated with an installation or connected infrastructure, including the design, planning, construction, operation and decommissioning thereof, related to exploration and production.

 

Amendment  10

Proposal for a regulation

Article 3 – point a

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

(a) information, in particular the assemble, analysis and dissemination of best practices, techniques and innovations, such as instruments for monitoring ships' tank-emptying and for monitoring of offshore platforms for operational releases and accidental spills;

(a) information, in particular the gathering, analysis and dissemination of best practices, techniques and innovations, such as instruments for monitoring ships' tank-emptying and for monitoring of offshore platforms for operational releases and accidental spills; in this regard, the Member States' authorities in charge of coordinating emergency response shall make available to the Agency evidence of prior assessments of any chemicals used as dispersants that have been carried out with a view to minimising public health implications and/or further environmental damage;

Amendment  11

Proposal for a regulation

Article 3 – point c

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

(c) operational assistance and supporting, on request, with additional means, such as stand-by anti-pollution ships, satellite images and equipment, pollution response actions by the affected States in the event of accidental or deliberate pollution caused by ships or marine pollution caused by offshore oil and gas installations.

(c) operational assistance and supporting, on request, with additional means, such as stand-by anti-pollution ships, satellite images and equipment, proposed actions and details of techniques, as well as pollution response actions by the affected States in the event of accidental or deliberate pollution caused by ships or marine pollution caused by offshore oil and gas installations and measures to clean up such pollution.

Amendment  12

Proposal for a regulation

Article 4 – paragraph 1

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

The financial envelope for the implementation of the tasks referred to in Article 3 for the period from 1 January 2014 to 31 December 2020 shall be EUR 160.500.000 expressed in current prices.

The financial envelope for the implementation of the tasks referred to in Article 3 for the period from 1 January 2014 to 31 December 2020 shall be EUR 185 500 000 expressed in current prices.

Justification

The proposed overall budgetary allocation falls beneath the minimum adequate threshold which would allow the Agency to continue with its current tasks as well as taking on new tasks assigned to it under Regulation No 100/2013.An additional €25 million over 7 years is required for a minimum implementation of the newly assigned tasks, without compromising the existing ones. All of those are “core tasks” of the Agency and thus there is a legal obligation on the Union to adequately fund them. For more details, see the explanatory statement.

Amendment  13

Proposal for a regulation

Article 4 – paragraph 1 a (new)

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

 

In the event that EMSA’s budget for this period is lower than that allocated in the previous multiannual financial framework, it shall draw up a memorandum, addressed to the European Parliament and the Council, explaining that this will affect its ability to carry out the tasks tht have been assigned to it.

Amendment  14

Proposal for a regulation

Article 5 – paragraph 1

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

In order to define the requirements for the provision of operational assistance by the Agency, such as additional anti-pollution vessels, the Agency shall set up on a regular basis a list of the public and, where available, private pollution response mechanisms and associated response capabilities in the various regions of the Union.

In order to define the requirements for the provision of operational assistance by the Agency, such as additional anti-pollution vessels, the Agency shall set up on a regular basis a list of the public and, where available, private pollution response mechanisms and associated response capabilities in the various regions of the Union. It shall also draw up a list of requirements that have not been met, specifying the implications thereof.

Amendment  15

Proposal for a regulation

Article 5 – paragraph 2 a (new)

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

 

In accordance with the principle of mutual assistance and in view of the expansion of the Agency’s remit to cover the countries falling under the Union Enlargement policy and the European Neighbourhood Policy, countries bordering on Europe’s sea basins shall also facilitate the pooling of information and cooperate in setting up that list.

Justification

The extension of the Agency’s remit and activities to cover third countries bordering on Europe’s sea basins means that those countries should provide various details of their public and/or private mechanisms. Such pooling of information should be voluntary and be based on mutual assistance.

Amendment  16

Proposal for a regulation

Article 7 – paragraph 1 a (new)

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

 

The report shall clearly indicate the socio-economic, ecological and financial benefits of the Agency's response preparedness relating to pollution caused by ships and marine pollution cased by oil and gas installations.

Amendment  17

Proposal for a regulation

Article 7 – paragraph 2

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

On the basis of this report, the Commission may, if appropriate, propose amendments to this Regulation in particular in order to take account of scientific progress in the field of combating pollution caused by ships and marine pollution caused by oil and gas installations, especially pollution caused by oil or hazardous and noxious substances.

On the basis of that report, the Commission may, if appropriate, propose amendments to this Regulation, in particular in order to take account of scientific progress in the field of combating pollution caused by ships and marine pollution caused by oil and gas installations, especially pollution caused by oil or hazardous and noxious substances, as well as of changes to the regional and international commitments entered into by the Union in this area.

Justification

Technical progress is not the only factor needing to be taken into account during the mid-term evaluation of the Agency’s performance and activities. Given that the Union belongs to various regional and international organisations, account also needs to be taken of any changes to the commitments it has entered into as a member of those organisations.

EXPLANATORY STATEMENT

The European Maritime Safety Agency ("the Agency") established in 2002 was assigned tasks in the field of marine pollution response in 2004. Bearing in mind the long term nature of the Agency’s responsibility for pollution response, the efficient and thorough completion of the tasks involved requires appropriate financial security on the basis of a multiannual commitment. Therefore, in 2006 the EU legislator established multiannual funding for the Agency's action in the field of response to pollution caused by ships for the period from 2007 to 2013.

In accordance with Regulation 2038/2006 and Directive 2005/35/EC on ship source pollution(1), the three main tasks of the Agency in the field of response to pollution caused by ships are the following:

(a) Operational assistance to Member States

The Agency offers a network of stand-by oil spill response vessels to "top up" Member States’ response capacity when affected by a spill. It provides a satellite based oil spill detection and monitoring service called CleanSeaNet and information on chemical spills through the MAR-ICE network. Affected coastal states can request the intervention of oil spill response vessels through the Community Civil Protection Mechanism(2). Smooth integration with Member State response mechanisms is undertaken through regular participation in national and regional exercises.

(b) Cooperation and coordination

The Agency liaises with pollution response experts of Member States as well as with existing Regional Agreements and the International Maritime Organisation.

(c) Information

The Agency collects, analyses and disseminates information on best practices, techniques and innovation in the field of marine pollution response.

Regulation 100/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council amending Regulation (EC) No 1406/2002, assigned to the Agency tasks with regard to response to marine pollution caused by oil and gas installations and extended the Agency's services to the countries covered by the enlargement policy and by the European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP).

Various evaluation activities have been carried out during the past years. The main conclusions drawn from these evaluations are positive. The allocated amount of the budget dedicated to pollution response has been found as adequate. The measures financed are widely seen as to be cost efficient, providing added value and being appropriately managed.

Summary of the proposal

The proposed Regulation seeks to renew the multiannual funding for the period from 2014 to 2020 in the framework of the new financial perspectives.

It lays down the detailed arrangements for the financial contribution of the Union to the budget of the Agency for the implementation of the tasks assigned to it in the field of responding to pollution caused by ships and offshore oil and gas installations.

The Commission proposes earmarking an amount of Є 160.5 million under the Heading 1 "Smart and Inclusive Growth" for the reference period from 1 January 2014 to 31 December 2020. The annual amounts should be authorised by the Budgetary Authority in accordance with the budgetary procedure.

With the entry into force of the amendments to the Founding Regulation No 100/2013 in January 2013, the Agency received the following new tasks in the area of pollution response:

a) Its current response actions in case of "pollution caused by ships" will also cover "marine pollution caused by oil and gas installations",

b) CleanSeaNet will also "monitor the extent and environmental impact of marine oil pollution caused by oil and gas installations",

c) The current geographical coverage (Member States &accession countries) is extended to "European Neighbourhood partner countries and to countries taking part in the Paris Memorandum of Understanding on Port State Control". With this, the Agency's vessels can be used throughout the entire area of the Union's regional sea basins.

The Commission proposes that the earmarked amount should only extend to the first two new tasks, with initial funding to start building up the new tasks while not compromising the existing tasks. The third new task should be financed from existing EU programmes for countries covered by the enlargement policy and by the ENP (the programme SAFEMED for the Mediterranean Sea and programmes under the TRACECA initiative for the Black Sea).

The Agency is asked to continue with synergies and other saving measures taken, so as to limit the impact of inflation not being taken into account in this proposal.

Rapporteur's position

The Rapporteur welcomes the Commission proposal to continue with the multi-annual financing of the Agency in the field of pollution response activities.

However, he is gravely concerned about the inconsistency in the Commission’s approach: on the one hand, co-legislators decided to allocate new tasks to the Agency, as outlined above, on the other hand the current proposal will not allow the Agency to fulfil these responsibilities.

The Agency's work on prevention and pollution response preparedness is not just financially beneficial but also adds non-monetary value. Given the devastating ecological impact and huge economic costs of possible accidents, as well as the socio-economic impact on other sectors, such as tourism and fisheries, sufficient investment in the Agency is crucial. This is the fundamental reasoning guiding the Rapporteur’s position, as outlined below:

1) The Rapporteur is disappointed that Commission proposes to keep the amount allocated for the next seven years at the same level as before, with virtually no increase, given that not even inflation is taken into account. For existing projects the same amount is allocated: 154.480 M Euro, but for new projects only 6.020 M. That would allow for only very limited implementation of new tasks, or if new tasks are taken on, this would mean compromising the implementation of existing projects.

The Rapporteur therefore considers that the financial reference amount mentioned in Article 4 of the proposal should be 185.500.000 euro in current prices (see the table in Annex). This is because the proposed overall budgetary allocation of 160.500.000 euro for the period from 2014 to 2020 falls beneath the minimum adequate threshold for the Agency to continue with its current tasks, as well as taking on its new tasks, assigned to it by Regulation No 100/2013.

The increased amount of €25 million over seven years would allow the Agency to perform the minimum number of actions in order to carry out its new assigned tasks. In particular:

•   Contracting of two additional stand-by oil recovery vessels

Two geographical areas are currently not covered (Arctic and Canary Islands/South Portugal) in terms of new exploratory offshore drilling activities. Considering the current levels of activities to explore further shipping routes as well as oil and gas resources, these areas need to be phased-in in 2015 and 2017. In order to cover areas with offshore installations, the Agency has already begun to redeploy its vessels. For instance, a call for tenders has been issued for 2013/2014 for the northern North Sea and the Adriatic Sea.

•   Specialised equipment for offshore spills

In order to monitor offshore spills the Agency needs to acquire specialized equipment above and beyond their existing equipment. These additional tools are much needed, however the overall amount earmarked for this purpose is very limited. The Agency plans to phase- in those activities over a 3 year period.

•   Dispersants for offshore spills

The Agency’s operational tasks are part of coastal States' pollution response mechanism, primarily focussing on spills beyond the national response capacity of individual Member States, and following a request for support. The Agency needs to build-up its pollution preparedness, probably including the establishment of dispersant systems. The final decision on use of a particular anti-pollution method should be taken by the Member State requesting support. The Rapporteur requests that if dispersants need to be used, that they are chosen on the basis of what will deliver the best overall outcome for the environment.

•   Extension of CleanSeaNet for monitoring offshore installations

In order to ensure regular monitoring of the offshore installations which are not covered today by services to the Member States, the Agency needs to acquire more satellite imaging capability.

The Rapporteur supports the idea that the earmarked amount of 185.500.000 euro should only extend to the first two new tasks. The extension of the current geographical coverage should be financed from existing EU programmes for countries covered by the enlargement policy and by the ENP.

2) Following the adoption of the position of the European Parliament at first reading with a view to the adoption of Directive 2013/.../EU of the European Parliament and of the Council on safety of offshore oil and gas operations and amending Directive 2004/35/EC in plenary on 21 May 2013, a number of alignments are proposed, including the definitions of ‘installations’ and ‘offshore oil and gas operations’ in Article 2.

3) The Rapporteur introduces two reporting requirements calling for the provision of reliable figures on:

•   The socio-economic costs and ecological impact of accidents by ships and oil and gas installations in Article 7, and

•   The ecological impact of dispersants in Article 3 paragraph 1 point a.

Conclusion

The Rapporteur considers that the Commission's proposal for funding for the Agency is insufficient, given its new responsibilities and therefore proposes a higher amount. Appropriate multiannual funding of the Agency's work in the field of pollution response activities provides excellent value for the money as it not only allows the Agency to properly carry out its current and newly assigned tasks, but also helps prevent the enormous costs (both ecological and socio-economic) arising from oil and gas spill accidents.

OPINION of the Committee on Budgets (6.9.2013)

for the Committee on Transport and Tourism

on the proposal for a regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council on multiannual funding for the action of the European Maritime Safety Agency in the field of response to pollution caused by ships and to marine pollution caused by oil and gas installations

(COM(2013)0174 – C7‑0089/2013 – 2013/0092(COD))

Rapporteur: Jutta Haug

SHORT JUSTIFICATION

The Commission has proposed a regulation for a new multiannual funding in the field of response to maritime pollution. The previous multiannual funding, agreed upon in 2006, covered the period from 2007 to 2013; the present proposal shall cover the period of the next multiannual financial framework from 2014 to 2020. The implementation of these tasks shall again be assigned to the European Maritime Safety Agency (EMSA).

Your Rapporteur agrees to the establishment of multiannual funding assigned to EMSA in the field of marine pollution response as the long-term nature of the Agency's tasks requires financial security based on multiannual commitments.

Compared to the current multiannual funding which covers the response to pollution caused by ships, the next multiannual funding shall also cover marine pollution caused by offshore oil and gas installations, in line with the new tasks deriving from Regulation (EU) No 100/2013.

This Regulation amending EMSA's founding regulation also extended the geographical coverage of the aforementioned tasks to the enlargement and European Neighbourhood partner countries. The Commission nevertheless proposed not to include this aspect in the multiannual funding but to finance these activities from existing ENP and enlargement programmes. Your Rapporteur regrets that the Commission did not provide figures for the ENP aspect, at least for information, given the fact that the legislative financial statement for the amending regulation (COM(2010)0611) also failed to provide any information thereon.

With regard to the appropriations proposed by the Commission for the multiannual funding, your Rapporteur doubts if they will be sufficient to cover the new tasks. For the period 2007 to 2013 EUR 154 million had been allocated to maritime pollution response activities. Above mentioned additional tasks shall be carried out with an addition of only EUR 6.5 million. The agency itself requested EUR 198 million, so EUR 37.5 million more to fulfil these responsibilities than the Commission is proposing. Your Rapporteur is therefore suggesting that the Commission proposal be modified in line with the estimations proposed in the draft report for the Committee on Transport and Tourism, which strike a fair balance between the agency and Commission estimates.

Your Rapporteur is furthermore questioning the Commission's approach of not foreseeing additional posts to cover the extension of tasks of the agency. This mismatch needs to be addressed for upcoming annual budgetary procedures. Therefore the Commission must present an updated financial statement, taking into account modifications by the legislative authority.
