Third Maritime Package

The European Parliament’s first reading voted on proposals to protect Europe against maritime accidents and pollution dates back to April 2007. EP has then produced a series of reports at second reading on the third maritime package. Member State transport ministers, however, are still blocking two areas namely on flag state obligations and civil liability and have not taken up most of Parliament's recommendations on the other issues.
