Stakeholder Press Release: Improved Port Reception Facilities welcomed by European Shipowners

European shipowners welcome the Plastic Strategy adopted by the European Commission last week. The coherent and impressively first-ever Europe-wide strategy on plastic forming part of the transition towards a more circular economy also included the long awaited revision of the Ports Reception Facilities Directive. The new proposal aims to achieve a higher level of protection of the marine environment and introduces measures to prevent marine litter. It aims to ensure there are adequate port reception facilities available, require an advance waste notification from ships and transparency of the waste delivery fee charging structures. The majority of marine litter originates from land-based activities but shipping has an important role to play in controlling the ship-generated waste.

Press Release: Proposal for a new directive on port reception facilities aims to tackle sea-based sources of marine litter

Today the European Commission adopted the first-ever Europe wide strategy on plastics. The strategy is part of the transition towards a more circular economy to protect the planet, defend our citizens and empower our industries. The new rules on port reception facilities for the delivery of waste from ships will influence in particular the maritime sector. The new rules address sea-based sources of marine litter including plastic household waste from ships and derelict fishing gear with measures to ensure that this waste is not discharged at sea, but landed in ports to adequate waste reception facilities. Also included are measures to reduce the administrative burden on ports, ships and competent authorities by aligning better with the international legal framework.
