Chapter Summary

Regulation 3577/1992 revoked the privilege of coastal trading in vessels flying the Greek flag and imposed harmonisation of national law and order with the community legislation during a transitional period, and no later than 1.1.2004. However, under the pressure of the shipwreck of the Express Samina, Greece enacted Law 2932/2001 in an effort to liberalize Greek coastal trading prior to expiry of the exemption deadline Greece had been granted. There has been argument for the fact that maritime cabotage between islands in its entirety, especially due to its special aspects given its insular nature, falls within the sense of public service. Whether a shipowner wishes to become active on a line where there is already heavy competition is a business decision and is not within the discretion of the Minister, except where there are considerations regarding the safety of the vessel, or where perchance a public service contract is involved.
