Chapter Summary

This chapter deals with the aspects of EU maritime safety regulation, which differ from the international rules. The rapid quantitative growth in EU maritime safety legislation during the last 15 years has been coupled with a gradually increasing independence from the related international rules. Over time, many types of deviation that are more problematic from a legal point of view have been added. International law considerations underlie all EU maritime safety measures and that both the substance of the rules and the methods chosen for the enforcement are normally based on a careful consideration of what can and cannot be done within the jurisdictional limits of international law. Community is becoming increasingly receptive to international law and that international rules are increasingly being accepted as forming part of the Community legal order, even as ranking higher than Community secondary legislation and constituting a ground for declaring the latter invalid.
