Details

The rapporteur pointed out that 80% of accidents at sea were caused by human error. This was why the impact of the human factor needed to be minimised, by rationalising the qualification criteria and ensuring that these were correctly applied. Commissioner Bjerregaard considered that the common position was acceptable as it was and urged Parliament not to insist on adopting its amendments at second reading so that the directive could enter into force as soon as possible.

Pointing out that 80% of accidents at sea were caused by human error, the rapporteur called for minimum levels of training for seafarers. The amendments tabled aimed, among other aspects, to reduce the legal uncertainty which still existed as regards the mutual recognition of training certificates between Member States. The rapporteur therefore called for the creation of a European institute for the training of seafarers. Commissioner Kinnock firstly stressed that amending the 1994 Directive was preferable to drafting a new directive which would slow the procedure. He then pointed out that consistency needed to be ensured between the 1994 Directive, the new requirements of the IMO inserted in the STCW Convention and the common criteria for the recognition, in the European Union, of seafarers’ certificates issued by third countries.

Details

The Committee was of the opinion that nothing should be done which might in any way undermine the integrity and enforceability of the revised STCW Convention at international level and considered that a European directive giving effect to the revised STCW Convention could complement this Convention provided: - it did not cause any unnecessary duplication of requirements and would not require frequent revision; - it would not create legal uncertainty or a legal conflict between the international and national obligations of Member States who were also Parties to IMO Instruments; - it was fully in line with the undertakings of the Commission, as contained in the Communication on Safe Seas (COM(93)66 final); - it did not prejudice the aims the IMO articulated when it adopted the revised STCW Convention; - it did not contain any provisions which could be interpreted as permitting any watch-keeping arrangements which contradicted the provisions of the revised Convention. The Committee was also of the opinion that the amending directive should fully reflect the clarification provided by the transitional provisions of the revised STCW Convention and the implementation dates for the various requirements which had been agreed within the IMO. As regards the recognition of seafarers’ certificates issued by third countries, the Committee agreed with the new text of Article 9(3) as it complied with the requirements of Regulation I/10 of the revised STCW Convention. Finally, the Committee noted that neither Directive 94/58/EC nor the 1978 or 1995 STCW Conventions applied to fishing vessels and that a parallel convention had been adopted by the IMO (the STCW-F Convention). It urged the Commission to encourage the Member States to ratify the new convention in order to ensure a harmonised EU approach on the standards of training and certification of fishing vessel crews.

  • date: 1997-05-29T00:00:00 type: Debate in Parliament body: EP summary: Pointing out that 80% of accidents at sea were caused by human error, the rapporteur called for minimum levels of training for seafarers. The amendments tabled aimed, among other aspects, to reduce the legal uncertainty which still existed as regards the mutual recognition of training certificates between Member States. The rapporteur therefore called for the creation of a European institute for the training of seafarers. Commissioner Kinnock firstly stressed that amending the 1994 Directive was preferable to drafting a new directive which would slow the procedure. He then pointed out that consistency needed to be ensured between the 1994 Directive, the new requirements of the IMO inserted in the STCW Convention and the common criteria for the recognition, in the European Union, of seafarers’ certificates issued by third countries.

  • date: 1998-01-29T00:00:00 type: Debate in Parliament body: EP summary: The rapporteur pointed out that 80% of accidents at sea were caused by human error. This was why the impact of the human factor needed to be minimised, by rationalising the qualification criteria and ensuring that these were correctly applied. Commissioner Bjerregaard considered that the common position was acceptable as it was and urged Parliament not to insist on adopting its amendments at second reading so that the directive could enter into force as soon as possible.
