New civil aviation safety rules

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 ...

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. Two years later, the European Parliament and the Council reached a provisional agreement on the new rules and the rules have been in force since 11 September 2018. The reform includes the first-ever EU rules for civil drones, extends the EASA's mandate and provides for using existing resources more efficiently. Fourth edition.

Recognition of professional qualifications in inland navigation

09-11-2017

While inland navigation is a cost-effective and environmentally friendly mode of transport, it is not used to its full capacity. Apart from the need for significant infrastructure improvements, the sector is affected by limited labour mobility and shortage of qualified workers. 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 ...

While inland navigation is a cost-effective and environmentally friendly mode of transport, it is not used to its full capacity. Apart from the need for significant infrastructure improvements, the sector is affected by limited labour mobility and shortage of qualified workers. 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 boatmasters, the proposal introduces harmonised rules for all deck crew members. Moreover, it extends the scope of legislation to the previously excluded River Rhine. Ultimately, the proposal should facilitate entry to professions in inland navigation, improve career prospects and make jobs in the sector more attractive. Fourth edition.

Qualifiche professionali nel settore della navigazione interna

08-11-2017

Nel quadro dei suoi sforzi volti a ridurre le emissioni del settore dei trasporti, l'UE intende ottimizzare l'uso della navigazione interna. A tal fine occorre affrontare la limitata mobilità del lavoro e la carenza di lavoratori qualificati nel settore. La proposta di direttiva è intesa a stabilire un sistema di qualifiche basato sulle competenze per i lavoratori di tutte le vie navigabili interne dell'UE. Infine, le nuove norme mirano a rendere più attraenti i posti di lavoro nel settore della ...

Trasporto marittimo: regole di traffico e sicurezza

01-11-2017

Negli ultimi anni diversi regolamenti e direttive dell'UE, in particolare i tre pacchetti legislativi adottati in seguito agli incidenti delle petroliere Erika e Prestige, hanno notevolmente migliorato le norme di sicurezza della navigazione marittima.

Disposizioni e norme di sicurezza per le navi da passeggeri

27-09-2017

A seguito della revisione della legislazione unionale in materia di sicurezza per le navi da passeggeri, la Commissione europea ha proposto una serie di modifiche per semplificare le norme esistenti e ridurre i costi amministrativi, rendendo al contempo il trasporto marittimo più sicuro. Questa proposta di direttiva chiarisce i requisiti tecnici per la costruzione, la stabilità e la sicurezza antincendio delle imbarcazioni che servono rotte nazionali. Le norme di nuova definizione dovrebbero conferire ...

Despite some recent high-profile disasters, 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. In addition, 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 replace the current Regulation on civil aviation safety and the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). The new proposal would introduce risk- and performance-based rules, close some safety gaps and interlinks safety more closely with other domains such as security and the environment. It proposes to strengthen EASA's role and take several measures to use existing resources more efficiently (e.g. sharing aviation inspectors). It also introduces essential requirements for drones. In November 2016, the European Parliament's Committee on Transport and Tourism generally backed the updated rules, in particular the idea of regulating drones at EU level. The report constitutes Parliament’s position for negotiations with the Council, which adopted its general approach for the negotiations with the Parliament on 1 December 2016.

The IA clearly identifies and defines the problems, demonstrating that EU action is necessary to address them. The analysis emphasises that, in this case, EU action is further justified by the limited provisions offered by the existing EU legislative framework and potential offered by the IWT sector towards the objectives of the Single Market.

The IA clearly identifies and defines the problems, demonstrating that EU action is necessary to address them. The analysis emphasises that, in this case, EU action is further justified by the limited provisions offered by the existing EU legislative framework and potential offered by the IWT sector towards the objectives of the Single Market. Although the legislative proposal is limited to aspects of labour mobility, the analysis presents a wide array of policy measures that can be adopted to tackle the main problem drivers as presented in the impact assessment, and provides an explanation for the measures that were discarded prior to the analysis. Some criticism can be made concerning the weak quantification of impacts. This is recognised through the analysis, and justified on the basis of the high regional diversification of the sector concerned by the EU action, and the difficulties linked to the monitoring and data collection processes.  

Employment and working conditions in EU civil aviation

15-04-2016

Aviation is a strategically important sector of the EU economy, contributing €110 billion directly and €300 billion indirectly to EU GDP, and employing around 1.9 million persons directly. If impacts on other industries such as tourism are taken into account, then it can be said that aviation supports up to 9 million jobs. These jobs are not evenly spread across the EU: three quarters of air transport employment is centred in Germany, France, the United Kingdom, Spain, Italy and the Netherlands. ...

Aviation is a strategically important sector of the EU economy, contributing €110 billion directly and €300 billion indirectly to EU GDP, and employing around 1.9 million persons directly. If impacts on other industries such as tourism are taken into account, then it can be said that aviation supports up to 9 million jobs. These jobs are not evenly spread across the EU: three quarters of air transport employment is centred in Germany, France, the United Kingdom, Spain, Italy and the Netherlands. Since the EU liberalised the aviation market in the early 1990s, the industry has gone through notable changes which have also had an impact on employment and working conditions. For instance, outsourcing has increased; some workers have had to operate from airline bases where they do not live; income has become more variable; many have been laid off and those remaining in work have had to increase their productivity. Furthermore, next to full-time permanent contracts, atypical forms of employment such as agency work, self-employment, zero-hour contracts and pay-to-fly schemes have increasingly been used, especially for younger staff and new entrants to the workforce. Persons employed under such schemes often have more precarious working conditions and are generally less likely to be unionised. EU institutions have repeatedly examined working conditions in civil aviation. Some Members of the European Parliament, as well as of the European Economic and Social Committee, have expressed concerns about the use of atypical forms of employment and multiplication of airlines' home bases. Although the aviation strategy that the European Commission published at the end of 2015 deals with working conditions, it did not present any new legislative initiative on this issue.
