Seminar on the transposition of the third maritime safety package

Brussels, 29-30 September 2009

Less than six months following the adoption of the third maritime safety package by the Council and the European Parliament, the Commission is organising on 29-30 September a two-day seminar on the transposition of the six Directives on the package.

The main objective of this seminar is to assist the Member States in preparing the transposition of this important legislative package and thus to provide further clarification on the objectives of the texts and on their main principles and modalities. More specifically, it aims at assisting those in the Member States who may not have had the opportunity to directly participate in the inter-institutional negotiation of the package and are in charge of the transposition.

The Commission would like to underline that it is the first time since the adoption of the 2007 Commission Communication on the application of Community law that our institution proposes such opportunity to closer co-operation with Member States in preparing the transposition of a legislative package in the field of transports.
