Description: Department of Transport - An Roinn Iompair    

Proposal for a Directive of the European Parliament and of the Council on port reception facilities for the delivery of waste from ships

The Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport would like to advise that the European Commission have on the 16th January 2018 released their proposal for a Directive of the European Parliament and of the Council on port reception facilities for the delivery of waste from ships, repealing Directive 2000/59/EC (the current Port Reception Facilities Directive) and making consequential amendments to Directive 2009/16/EC (the Port State Control Directive) and Directive 2010/65/EU (the Reporting Formalities Directive).

 

This Directive only concerns “waste, including cargo residues, which is generated during the service of a ship or during loading, unloading and cleaning operations, or waste that is collected in nets during fishing operations, and falls under the scope of Annexes I, II, IV, V and VI to MARPOL” (the International Maritime Organization’s International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships).

 

The proposal seeks to replace the current Directive 2000/59/EC.
For some background information on the Directive and the reasons for the revision, please see link below

https://ec.europa.eu/transport/modes/maritime/news/2018-01-16-plastic-waste_en

 

Note that of course this is a proposal and will be subject to change during the negotiation process, the current Directive remains in force as does the Irish transposition in S.I. 117/2003 (as amended).

Our initial assessment of the main changes/new provisions are:

·         Alignment with the International Maritime Organization MARPOL Convention has taken place generally, Annex VI waste (scrubbers) is now included, see definitions in Art. 2; waste that may be disposed at sea in accordance with MARPOL need not be delivered to ports; cargo residues are considered waste

·         Segregated waste to be collected in ports as per Waste Framework Directive (although note is taken of the Animal By-products Regulation) see Art. 4

  • There are no major changes to the format and content required in waste reception and handling plans though further elaboration is provided on the extent of consultation with port users required. There is further elaboration also as to what kind of developments should see a reapproval of the plan, which include new on-board treatment techniques, see Art. 5
  • Under the proposal, fishing and recreational vessels over 45m would be required to submit Advance Notification Forms for Waste Delivery (see Annex of proposal for model form), see Art. 6
  • Waste operator or port authority to provide waste receipt (see Annex for model form), the European Commission to develop a method of calculating “sufficient storage” which can allow a ship to continue to the next port without discharging (but only if this port in the EU), see Art 7; given the scheduled departure of the UK from the EU this article could have far reaching implications for some Irish ports (see also Art. 9.1(c) in this respect).

 

  • Cost Recovery System changes: the recommendation that 30% of the cost of providing waste facilities be recovered in an indirect fee has been made mandatory; however the full cost of providing facilities for garbage is to be recovered by indirect fees (designed to incentivise the delivery of all garbage at least); garbage now includes waste recovered by fishing nets; some fishing and recreation vessels subject to fees (20% target for inspection of domestic/fishing/recreational vessels over 100 GT), scrubber waste fees however are fully based on quantity, see our summary table and Art. 8. Furthermore the option to reduce fees for “green” ships has become mandatory and European Commission will develop criteria for this.
  • Throughout there are more requirements for, especially online, reporting.

 

Given this directive is a revision, an overall timeframe of 18 months is a reasonable expectation, followed by a period (to be negotiated), before it becomes law in Ireland.

 

Negotiations on the detail of this proposal will begin in the next couple of weeks. Hence we need to hear your initial views as soon as possible, preferably by 12th February 2018. Please do so by emailing shipsourcepollutionprevention@dttas.ie, however we will be happy to hear your views throughout the process. If you would prefer to give your feedback directly to the Commission you can do so at the link below up until the 16th March 2018 http://ec.europa.eu/info/law/better-regulation/initiatives/com-2018-33_en

Member States shall take measures to ensure that, where possible, ships, which do not fall within the scope of this Directive, deliver their waste in a manner consistent with this Directive. 

Member States shall take measures to ensure that ships which are excluded from the scope of this Directive under point (a) of the preceding paragraph deliver their ship-generated waste and cargo residues in a manner consistent, in so far as is reasonable and practicable, with this Directive.

Reworded to be more strict, currently instead of “where possible” it reads “in so far as is reasonable and practicable”.

SECTION 2: PROVISION OF ADEQUATE PORT RECEPTION FACILITIES

Article 4

Port reception facilities

1.             Member States shall ensure the availability of port reception facilities adequate to meet the need of the ships normally using the port without causing undue delay to ships.

 

 

Article 4

Port reception facilities

1. Member States shall ensure the availability of port reception facilities adequate to meet the needs of the ships normally using the port without causing undue delay to ships.

 

 

 

 

same

2.           Member States shall ensure that:

 

(a)     The  port  reception  facilities  have  the  capacity  to  receive  the  types  and quantities of waste from ships normally using that port, taking into account the operational needs of the users of the port, the size and geographical location of the port, the type of ships calling at that port, and the exemptions provided for under Article 9;

2. To achieve adequacy, the reception facilities shall be capable of receiving the types and quantities of ship-generated waste and cargo residues from ships normally using that port, taking into account the operational needs of the users of the port, the size and the geographical location of the port, the type of ships calling at that port and the exemptions provided for under Article 9.

Now more clearly the responsibility of MS. Currently it is worded “capable of receiving” whereas proposal has “capacity to receive”

(b)           The formalities relating to the use of the facilities are simple and expeditious to avoid undue delays to ships, and the fees charged for delivery do not create a disincentive for ships to use the port reception facilities;

[compare (cf) Art. 12.1(e) “[Member States shall] (e) ensure that the formalities relating to the use of port reception facilities are simple and expeditious in order to create an incentive for the master to use port reception facilities and to avoid undue delays to ships;”]

Similar

(c)     The port reception facilities allow for the management of the ship’s waste in an environmentally appropriate way in accordance with the requirements of Directive 2008/98/EC and other relevant Union legislation on waste. To this end, the Member States shall provide for separate collection of waste from ships in ports as required in Union waste legislation, in particular Directive 2008/98/EC [Waste Framework Directive], Directive 2012/19/EU [WEEE Directive] and Directive 2006/66/EC [Batteries Directive].

[cf 12.1 (g) ensure that the treatment, recovery or disposal of ship-generated waste and cargo residues shall be carried out in accordance with Directive 75/442/EEC and other relevant Community waste legislation, in particular Council Directive 75/439/EEC of 16 June 1975 on the disposal of waste oils ( 1 ) and Council Directive 91/689/EEC of 12 December 1991 on hazardous waste ( 2 )]

Reference to the Waste Framework Directive

Point (c) shall apply without prejudice to the more stringent requirements imposed by Regulation (EC) 1069/2009 [Animal By-Products Regulation] for the management of catering waste from international transport.

 

New, reference to Animal By-Products Reg.

3.             Member States shall use the forms and procedures laid down by IMO, for reporting to the authorities of the port state alleged inadequacies of port reception facilities.

3. Member States shall establish procedures, in accordance with those agreed by the International Maritime Organization (IMO), for reporting to the port State alleged inadequacies of port reception facilities.

Change from using procedures “in accordance” with IMO to those “laid down” by IMO.

Any information received through this reporting procedure shall also be transmitted electronically to the part of the information, monitoring and enforcement system referred to in article 14 of this Directive.

[cf 12.1 (f) [Member States shall] ensure that the Commission is provided with a copy of the allegations of inadequate port reception facilities referred to in Article 4(3)]

New online reporting requirement via Safe Sea Net (SSN), though the reporting requirement is already there in 12.1 (f) of current Directive.

4.             Member States shall investigate all reported cases of alleged inadequacies and ensure that any party involved in the delivery or reception of waste from ships can claim compensation for damage caused by undue delay.

[cf 12.1 (h) ensure in accordance with their national legislation that any party involved in the delivery or reception of ship-generated waste or cargo residues can claim compensation for damage caused by undue delay.]

New requirement on MS to investigate alleged inadequacies

Article 5

Waste reception and handling plans

1.             An appropriate waste reception and handling plan shall be in place and implemented for each port following ongoing consultations with the relevant parties, in particular with port users or their representatives. Those consultations should be held both during the initial drafting of the plans and after their adoption, in particular when significant changes have taken place, with regards to the requirements in Articles 4, 6, and 7. The detailed requirements for the development of such plans are set out in Annex 1.

Article 5

Waste reception and handling plans

1. An appropriate waste reception and handling plan shall be developed and implemented for each port following consultations with the relevant parties, in particular with port users or their representatives, having regard to the requirements of Articles 4, 6, 7, 10 and 12. Detailed requirements for the development of such plans are set out in Annex I.

 

 

The proposal further elaborates on consultation required, specifically that it should occur during initial drafting and on an ongoing basis, particularly after significant change.

 

Annex 1 in the proposal has no significant changes to the first part of current annex 1 save some updated language.

2.  Member States shall ensure that the following information from the waste reception and handling plans on the availability of adequate reception facilities in their ports and the associated costs shall be clearly communicated to the ship operators and made publicly available either via the website of the ports or in printed form:

(a)     location of port reception facilities applicable to each berth;

(b)    list of waste from ships normally managed by the port;

(c)     list of contact points, the operators and the services offered; (d)    description of the procedures for delivery of the waste;

(e)    description of the cost recovery systems; and

(f)    description  of  the  procedures  for  reporting  alleged  inadequacies  of  port reception facilities.

 

This list of information which is to be made available publically has been moved from the second part of Annex 1 of the current directive into the body of the directive in the proposal (however the “brief reference to the fundamental importance of proper delivery etc” has been left off). The proposal further stipulates how this information is to be transmitted and seems to require that an “extract” from the plan is “pushed” out to ship operators.  Currently it is merely “to be made available to all port users”.

This information shall also be electronically reported in the part of the information, monitoring and enforcement system referred to in Article 14 of this Directive, in accordance with Directive 2002/59/EC.

 

Stipulates the info above should be on the ports website and on SSN.

3.             The  waste  reception  and  handling plans  referred  to  in  paragraph  1  may,  where required for reasons of efficiency, be developed in conjunction by two or more neighbouring ports in the same region, with the appropriate involvement of each port, provided that the need for and availability of, reception facilities are specified for each port.

2. The waste reception and handling plans referred to in paragraph 1 may, where required for reasons of efficiency, be developed in a regional context with the appropriate involvement of each port, provided that the need for, and availability of, reception facilities are specified for each individual port.

See changes in bold text

4.             Member States shall evaluate and approve the waste reception and handling plan, monitor its implementation and ensure its re-approval at least every three years after it has been approved or re-approved, and after significant changes in the operation of the  port  have  taken  place.  These changes shall  include,  but  not  be  limited  to, structural changes in traffic to the port, development of new infrastructure, changes in the demand and provision of port reception facilities, and new on-board treatment techniques.

3. Member States shall evaluate and approve the waste reception and handling plan, monitor its implementation and ensure its re-approval at least every three years and after significant changes in the operation of the port.

Very similar wording save the proposal (see underlined text) gives some detail as to what kind of changes might require a new plan approval  including “new on-board treatment techniques”

SECTION 3

DELIVERY OF WASTE FROM SHIPS

Article 6

Advance waste notification

1.           The  operator,  agent  or  master  of  a  ship  falling  within  the  scope  of  Directive 2002/59/EC [VTM  Directive] of the European Parliament and of the Council, other than a fishing vessel or a recreational craft of less than 45 metres bound for a port located in the EU shall complete accurately the form in Annex 2 [the advance waste notification form] and notify that information to the authority or body designated for this purpose by the Member State in which that port is located:

[Compare to Accompanying Measure 12.1(d) below: [Member States shall] “(d) ensure that the information notified by masters in accordance with Article 6 be appropriately examined;”

This is currently required under 12.1(d), element of sharing with enforcement officers is new.

Article 7

Delivery of waste from ships

1.             The master of a ship calling at a Union port shall, before leaving the port, deliver all the waste carried on board of the ship to a port reception facility in accordance with the relevant discharge norms laid down in the MARPOL Convention.

Article 7

Delivery of ship-generated waste

1. The master of a ship calling at a Community port shall, before leaving the port, deliver all ship-generated waste to a port reception facility.

 

 

Same save for new reference to MARPOL norms.

2.             Upon delivery, the waste operator or the authority of the port where the waste was delivered shall accurately complete the form in Annex 3 and issue the receipt to the ship.

 

New requirement to provide waste delivery receipts.

This requirement shall not apply in small unmanned ports or in remotely located ports, provided that the Member State where such a port is located has reported this information electronically in the part of the information, monitoring and enforcement system referred to in Article 14 of this Directive.

 

 

3.           The  operator,  agent  or  master  of  a  ship,  falling  within  the  scope  of  Directive 2002/59/EC, shall before departure, electronically report the information from the waste receipt in the part of the information, monitoring and enforcement system referred to in Article 14 of this Directive, in accordance with Directive 2010/65/EU and Directive 2002/59/EC.

 

 

4.             The information referred to in paragraph 2 shall be kept on board for at least two years and shall be made available upon request to the Member States’ authorities.

 

 

5.             Without prejudice to paragraph 1, a ship may proceed to the next port of call without delivering the waste, if:

2. Notwithstanding paragraph 1, a ship may proceed to the next port of call without delivering the ship-generated waste, if it follows from the information given in accordance with Article 6 and Annex II, that there is sufficient dedicated storage capacity for all ship-generated waste that has been accumulated and will be accumulated during the intended voyage of the ship until the port of delivery.

 

(a)     the ship only calls at anchorage for less than 24 hours or under adverse weather conditions;

 

Ref to calling at anchorage for 24 hours or less or in adverse weather

(b)           the information provided in accordance with Annexes 2 and 3 shows that there is sufficient dedicated storage capacity for all waste that has been accumulated and will be accumulated during the intended voyage of the ship until the next port of call.

 

Calculation of sufficient storage to be based on advance notification  and waste receipt

6.             In order to ensure uniform conditions for the implementation of the exception based on sufficient dedicated storage capacity, implementing powers shall be conferred on the Commission to define the methods to be used for the calculation of the sufficient dedicated storage capacity on board. Those implementing acts shall be adopted in accordance with the examination procedure referred to in Article 20(2).

 

European Commission to develop the method for calculating sufficient storage.

7.             If the next port of call is located outside the Union, or there are good reasons to believe that adequate facilities are not available in the next port of call, or this port is unknown, the Member State shall require the ship to deliver all its waste before departure.

If there are good reasons to believe that adequate facilities are not available at the intended port of delivery, or if this port is unknown, and that there is therefore a risk that the waste will be discharged at sea, the Member State shall take all necessary measures to prevent marine pollution, if necessary by requiring the ship to deliver its waste before departure from the port.

See changes in bold text.

8.             Paragraph 2 shall apply without prejudice to more stringent requirements for ships adopted in accordance with international law.

3. Paragraph 2 shall apply without prejudice to more stringent delivery requirements for ships adopted in accordance with international law.

Same

Article 8

Cost recovery systems

1.             Member States shall ensure that the costs of operating port reception facilities for the reception and treatment of waste from ships, other than cargo residues, shall be covered through the collection of a fee from ships. Those costs include the elements listed in Annex 4.

Article 8

Fees for ship-generated waste

1. Member States shall ensure that the costs of port reception facilities for ship-generated waste, including the treatment and disposal of the waste, shall be covered through the collection of a fee from ships.

 

 

Core idea same.

2.             The cost recovery systems shall provide no incentive for ships to discharge their waste at sea. To this end, the Member States shall apply the following principles in the design and operation of the cost recovery systems in ports:

2. The cost recovery systems for using port reception facilities shall provide no incentive for ships to discharge their waste into the sea. To this end the following principles shall apply to ships other than fishing vessels and recreational craft authorised to carry no more than 12 passengers:

Change from “into the sea” to “at sea”.  A more specific ref. here to MS being responsible.

(a)     part  of  the  fee  to  be  paid  by  ships  shall  be  an  indirect  fee,  to  be  paid irrespective of delivery of waste to a port reception facility;

(a) all ships calling at a port of a Member State shall contribute significantly to the costs referred to in paragraph 1, irrespective of actual use of the facilities. Arrangements to this effect may include incorporation of the fee in the port dues or a separate standard waste fee. The fees may be differentiated with respect to, inter alia, the category, type and size of the ship;

Indirect fee paid irrespective of delivery

(b)           the  indirect  fee  shall  cover  the  indirect  administrative  costs,  as  well  as  a significant part of the direct operational costs, as determined in Annex 4. The significant part of the direct operational costs shall represent at least 30 % of the total yearly direct costs for actual delivery of the waste;

 

Indirect fee to cover indirect costs as laid out in annex 4. The European Commission recommendation that “significantly” should mean 30% made compulsory here.

 (c)     in order to provide for a maximum incentive for the delivery of waste as defined in Annex V to the MARPOL Convention, including the waste that has been collected in nets during fishing operations, the indirect fee to be charged shall cover all the costs of port reception facilities for this waste, in order to ensure a right of delivery without any additional direct charges;

 

Indirect fees to cover full cost of PRF for Annex V waste including waste collected in nets.
