Improved procedure for environmental control of ballast water vessels in inland sea waters or territorial sea

EBA Logistics Committee experts for a long time advocated the introduction of environmental monitoring procedures for water containing contaminants during the stay of vessels in inland seawater or territorial sea, in accordance with the requirements of the Customs Code of Ukraine (elimination of ballast water control)

Committee experts argue that, in fact, by this time in Ukrainian legislation there was an imperfect procedure for the implementation of marine environmental inspections by the Inspection for the control of water discharges containing pollutants during the stay of vessels in inland waters of Ukraine.

The result of the adoption of the CMU resolution will reduce  corruption risks in the environmental sphere.

We thank the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine for a rational and fair approach to the issues that concern the business community!
