EMSA to help EU member states prevent piracy and pollution

Following an informal deal reached by Parliament’s negotiating team, and the Council’s Danish Presidency, the European Agency for Maritime Safety (EMSA) may get new powers to step up cooperation against piracy, prevent maritime pollution, improve training for seafarers and help establish an EU maritime space without barriers.
According to an article by the European Parliament (EP), once formally approved by the Council and the Parliament, this deal would enable EMSA to extend its preventive work and make broader use of its resources to help EU Member States prevent and tackle maritime pollution, protect ships against piracy and create the future European maritime space without barriers, by reducing bureaucracy.  
Accordingly, the leader of Parliament's negotiating team, Knut Fleckenstein, has reminded  that EMSA will not replace Member States' work, but “ it will bring added value”.
