New civil aviation safety rules

Briefing 15-10-2018

Flying remains one of the safest forms of transport, and the EU's accident rate is lower than in the rest of the world. However, it cannot automatically be assumed that such performance will continue, as global air traffic is forecast to double over the next 20 years. New technologies, such as unmanned aircraft (drones), are also appearing in European skies, which require adaption of the current regulatory framework. In December 2015, the European Commission proposed to update aviation safety rules ...

To enhance labour mobility, the European Commission proposed to establish a common system of qualifications for workers on EU inland waterways, based on their competence. While the EU legislation currently applies only to ...

Dans le cadre de ses efforts pour réduire les émissions dues aux transports, l’Union entend tirer le meilleur parti de la navigation intérieure.

Transports maritimes: règles de trafic et de sécurité

Fiches thématiques sur l’UE 01-11-2017

Plusieurs directives et règlements de l’Union ont considérablement amélioré les normes relatives à la sécurité des transports maritimes ces dernières années. Cela est plus particulièrement dû aux trois paquets législatifs qui ont été adoptés après les naufrages de l’Erika et du Prestige.

After a review of the EU legislation on passenger ship safety, the European Commission proposed a number of changes to simplify the existing rules and cut administrative costs, while making sea travel safer. This proposed directive clarifies technical requirements for construction, stability and fire protection of vessels travelling on domestic routes. The newly defined standards should provide for uniform national interpretations and make the rules easier to update, monitor and enforce.
