Ok of the Commission TRAN of the Parliament EU to the bill on the harbour systems for the bestowal of the refusals of the ships

Satisfied ESPO for the strengthening of the respect of the principle "who pollutes wage"

Today the Commission for transport and tourism of the European Parliament have approved of the project of relation of Gesine Meissner on the "harbour Systems of collection for the bestowal of the refusals of the ships" giving sent to the reporter to start the negotiations with the Council for the adoption of the new European law. A green light that is received with satisfaction from the association of the European ports, with particular reference to the strengthening of the respect of the principle "who pollutes wage" and the despondency of the delivery of unreasonable amounts of refusals in the ports, included produced dangerous, in exchange for a standing charge.

The European Sea Ports Organisation (ESPO) has evidenced moreover that the proposal aimed to make so that the ships deliver the refusals in occasion of every port of call in a port and they intentionally do not avoid to unload the refusals in some ports in order to save time. The association has emphasized also that the current formulation of the European bill in parliament avoids that the ports must be made loaded with additional costs for the delivery of amount of refusals that exceed the normal amounts generated in the course of navigation between two ports of port of call.

If ESPO has manifested appreciation for confirmation of these measures in the legislative text, it has instead expressed regret because the eurodeputati ones have decided the application of reductions in price required in order to compensate the ships that adopt practical "greens" for the waste disposal and whose performances in terms of amount of refusals to deliver turn out advanced to the fixed standards from the law. The association of the European ports has specified that, if from a part it supports the action turns to encourage the ships to engage itself for a sustainable management of the refusals, from the other considers that the decision to adopt reductions in price must be assumed at the level of every port. ESPO has found that if the reductions in price come in general terms applied in order to answer to environmental challenges of local character, in some areas are the provoked pollution from waste to arouse worry for the atmosphere, while in others the alarm is for the quality of the air and the emissions of the ships. Moreover the association has specified that the introduction of reductions in price required does not hold account of the various models of business and governance that characterizes the ports in all the EU.
