Webinar on the EU Ship Recycling regulatory framework
ECSA urges the EU Commission to enter into a bilateral agreement with India to facilitate inclusion of Alang-based shipbreakers on the list of approved ship recycling facilities.
n May 5, MEP Jens Gieseke (Transport committee/EPP) and MEP Søren Gade (Chair of EP India Delegation/Renew) co-hosted an event organised by ECSA with industry representatives and NGOs on the EU Ship Recycling regulatory framework.
ECSA urges the EU Commission to enter into a bilateral agreement with India, to facilitate inclusion of Alang-based shipbreakers that have taken safety and environmental measures on the list of approved ship recycling facilities.
“ All stakeholders need to work together to extend the EU list in an uncomplicated manner. To be on it is a win-win situation for everyone: the industry, the recyclers, the workers and the environment. It is in our common interest that yards, that fulfil all necessary requirements, are on the EU list and therefore eligible to recycle European vessels.”
— Jens Gieseke, Member of Transport Committee of the European Parliament with EPP
