EU-funded SAFEMED trains Flag State inspectors of the Mediterranean region
March 5, 2019
In the framework of the EU financed SAFEMED IV project, the European Maritime Safety Agency (EMSA) organised the second Training for Flag State inspectors on 18-22 February 2019 at EMSA’s premises in Lisbon.
All participants engaged actively during the numerous case studies carried out during the training, conducted by EMSA staff and with valuable involvement of an expert from the Italian Coast Guard. The main goal was to provide the inspectors with additional knowledge and expertise to conduct oversight inspections on national flagged vessels and to achieve compliance with the applicable international legal framework.
EMSA is implementing SAFEMED IV project for technical assistance bringing together national, European and international stakeholders with the aim to raise the safety, security and protection of marine environment standards in the Mediterranean sea, with a view to implement the maritime aspects of the UfM Regional Transport Action Plan 2014-2020.
