Representatives of the legislative institutions of the EU successfully reached an agreement recently on the new Port Services Regulation. This legislation will establish a framework for the provision of port services and financial transparency of European ports.
During 2009 representatives from the European Tugowners Association (ETA) and the European Maritime Pilots’ Association (EMPA) met to discuss operational problems that both pilots and tug operators increasingly experience when handling the ever larger types of ship arriving in European ports.
The European Maritime Pilot's Association (EMPA) has warned that passage of the European Union's ports directive, which would force pilots to compete on a commercial basis, would compromise safety standards and discourage investment and training. EMPA represents 4,800 maritime pilots in Europe and facilitates the exchange of information between its members in order to continuously improve their professional and technical proficiency.
