Maritime Transport: final adoption of the Passenger Ship Safety package

The European Commission welcomes the final adoption by the Council of the EU of three legal texts that simplify and improve passenger ship safety.

The adopted package ensures that the rules are clear, proportionate and deliver a common level of safety for EU citizens. For example, once fully implemented by Member States, all competent authorities will have immediate access to passenger data in case of emergency and all passenger ships longer than 24 meters made of steel and aluminium will be built according to common European safety standards.
