DIRECTIVE 2009/42/EC OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL

of 6 May 2009

on statistical returns in respect of carriage of goods and passengers by sea

(Recast)

(Text with EEA relevance)



THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community, and in particular Article 285(1) thereof,

Having regard to the proposal from the Commission,

Acting in accordance with the procedure laid down in Article 251 of the Treaty ( 1 ),

Whereas:

(1)

Council Directive 95/64/EC of 8 December 1995 on statistical returns in respect of carriage of goods and passengers by sea ( 2 ) has been substantially amended several times ( 3 ). Since further amendments are to be made, it should be recast in the interests of clarity.

(2)

To carry out the tasks entrusted to it in the context of the common maritime transport policy, the Commission (Eurostat) should have at its disposal comparable, reliable, synchronised and regular statistical data on the scale and development of the carriage of goods and passengers by sea to and from the Community, between Member States and for domestic sea transport.

(3)

It is also important for Member States and economic operators to have a good knowledge of the maritime transport market.

(4)

The collection of Community statistical data on a comparable or harmonised basis makes it possible to establish an integrated system providing reliable, consistent and up-to-date information.

(5)

The data on the transport of goods and passengers by sea have to be made comparable between Member States and between the different modes of transport.

(6)

In accordance with the principle of subsidiarity, the creation of common statistical standards enabling harmonised information to be produced can only be tackled efficiently at Community level. Data will be collected in each Member State under the authority of the bodies and institutions in charge of compiling official statistics.

(7)

The measures necessary for the implementation of this Directive should be adopted in accordance with Council Decision 1999/468/EC of 28 June 1999 laying down the procedures for the exercise of implementing powers conferred on the Commission ( 4 ).

(8)

In particular, the Commission should be empowered to adopt certain detailed rules for implementing this Directive. Since those measures are of general scope and are designed to amend non-essential elements of this Directive, inter alia, by supplementing it with new non-essential elements, they must be adopted in accordance with the regulatory procedure with scrutiny provided for in Article 5a of Decision 1999/468/EC.

(9)

The new elements introduced into this Directive only concern the committee procedures. They therefore do not need to be transposed by the Member States.

(10)

This Directive should be without prejudice to the obligations of the Member States relating to the time limits for transposition into national law of the Directive set out in Annex IX, Part B,

HAVE ADOPTED THIS DIRECTIVE:



Article 1

Collection of statistical data

Member States shall collect Community statistics on the carriage of goods and passengers by seagoing vessels calling at ports in their territories.

Article 2

Definitions

For the purposes of this Directive:

(a) ‘carriage of goods and passengers by sea’ means the movement of goods and passengers using seagoing vessels, on voyages which are undertaken wholly or partly at sea.

The scope of this Directive shall also include goods:

(i) shipped to offshore installations;

(ii) reclaimed from the seabed and unloaded in ports.

Bunkers and stores supplied to vessels shall be excluded from the scope of this Directive;

(b) ‘seagoing vessels’ means vessels other than those which navigate exclusively in inland waters or in waters within, or closely adjacent to, sheltered waters or areas where port regulations apply.

This Directive shall not apply to fish-catching vessels, fish-processing vessels, vessels for drilling and exploration, tugs, pusher craft, research and survey vessels, dredgers, naval vessels or vessels used solely for non-commercial purposes;

(c) ‘port’ means a place having facilities for merchant ships to moor and to load or unload cargo or to disembark or embark passengers to or from vessels;

(d) ‘nationality of the maritime transport operator’ means that corresponding to the country in which the effective centre of the transport operator’s commercial activity is located;

(e) ‘maritime transport operator’ means any person by whom or on behalf of whom a contract for the transport of goods or persons by sea is concluded with a shipper or a passenger.

Article 3

Data collection characteristics

1.  Member States shall collect data relating to:

(a) cargo and passenger information;

(b) information on the vessel.

Vessels with a gross tonnage of less than 100 may be excluded from the data collection.

2.  The characteristics of the data collection, namely the statistical variables in each domain and the nomenclatures for their classification, as well as their periodicity of observation, are set out in Annexes I to VIII.

3.  The data collection shall be based, in so far as possible, on available sources, limiting the burden on respondents.

4.  The Commission shall adapt the data collection characteristics and the content of Annexes I to VIII to economic and technical developments in so far as such adaptation does not involve a substantial increase in cost for the Member States and/or in the burden on respondents.

▼M2

The Commission may adopt those measures by means of delegated acts in accordance with Article 10a and subject to the conditions of Articles 10b and 10c.

▼B

▼B

2.  Each Member State shall select from the list referred to in paragraph 1 any port handling more than one million tonnes of goods or recording more than 200 000 passenger movements annually.

For each port selected, detailed data are to be provided, in conformity with Annex VIII, for the domains (goods and passengers) in which that port meets the selection criterion, and with summary data, if appropriate, for the other domain.

3.  For the ports which are not selected from the list, summary data are to be provided in conformity with Annex VIII, data set A3.

ANNEX VIII

STRUCTURE FOR STATISTICAL DATA SETS

The data sets specified in this Annex define the periodicity for the maritime transport statistics required by the Union. Each data set defines a cross classification of a limited set of dimensions at different levels of the nomenclatures, aggregated across all other dimensions, for which statistics of good quality are required.

SUMMARY AND DETAILED STATISTICS

 The data sets to be provided for selected ports for goods and passengers are A1, A2, A3, B1, C1, C2, D1, E1, F1 and F2.

 The data sets to be provided for selected ports for goods but not for passengers are A1, A2, A3, B1, C1, C2, E1, F1 and F2.

 The data sets to be provided for selected ports for passengers but not for goods are A3, D1, F1 and F2.

 The data set to be provided for ports which are not selected (for either goods or passengers) is A3.

LEGAL STATUS OF DATA SETS

 Data sets A1, A2, A3, B1, C1, D1, E1 and F2 are mandatory.

 Data sets C2 and F1 are voluntary.
