EC proposes updated mandate of the European Maritime Safety Agency

The European Commission adopted a proposal modifying the mandate of the European Maritime Safety Agency (EMSA) to enable it to deal with new challenges in an ever-changing world. EMSA is widely recognised as an important contributor to the European Union's maritime transport and safety policy in close cooperation with the Commission, the Member States and stakeholders from the sector. Developments since the agency's start in 2003 require now a limited update of its mandate. Vice-president Siim Kallas, responsible for Transport, said: "Safety is a cornerstone of the EU transport policy. The European Maritime Safety Agency was created back in 2004 in response to disasters such as the ones involving the ferry Estonia or the tankers Erika or Prestige and I am very pleased to see it today as a well respected player, providing high value professional services to maritime transport and beyond. It is now time to update its mandate to allow it continuing successfully on this path."
