Overview

Even before September 2001, the Commission ranked security in maritime transport as a priority.

Initiatives were launched at international level to establish obligatory security standards. Once adopted, these were incorporated into EU legislation in order to ensure their respect not only by ships flying the flag of an EU Member State, but by all those entering Community waters.

There is active and sustained cooperation with the United States of America, China  Japan, Korea and Russia, soon to be extended to other partners of the EU.
