EU Directive on disposal of ship generated waste and cargo residues

  • Alt

Apart from the publication of the ship recycling regulation (cfr. further in this issue), 2013 saw little or no progress in European marine environmental legislation, even though EU-regulations concerning ship generated waste and cargo residues are long overdue. With the EU elections this coming May, 2014 promises to do no better than the last year, as all legislative initiatives will have to wait till the new EU Commission will have settled in.
