Proposal for a REGULATION OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL on the accelerated phasing-in of double-hull or equivalent design requirements for single-hull oil tankers /* COM/2011/0566 final - 2011/0243 (COD) */


EXPLANATORY MEMORANDUM

1.           On 1 April 1987 the Commission decided[1] to instruct its staff that all acts should be codified after no more than ten amendments, stressing that this is a minimum requirement and that departments should endeavour to codify at even shorter intervals the texts for which they are responsible, to ensure that their provisions are clear and readily understandable.

2.           The codification of Regulation (EC) No 417/2002 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 18 February 2002 on the accelerated phasing-in of double-hull or equivalent design requirements for single-hull oil tankers and repealing Council Regulation (EC) No 2978/94[2] has been initiated by the Commission. The new Regulation was to have superseded the various acts incorporated in it[3].

3.           In the meantime the Lisbon Treaty entered into force. Article 290 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union allows the legislator to delegate to the Commission the power to adopt non-legislative acts of general application to supplement or amend certain non-essential elements of a legislative act. Legal acts adopted by the Commission in this way are referred to in the terminology used by the new Treaty as "delegated acts" (Article 290(3)).

4.           Regulation (EC) No 417/2002 contains a provision with regard to which such a delegation of power would be opportune. It is therefore appropriate to transform the codification of Regulation (EC) No 417/2002 into a recast in order to incorporate the necessary amendments.

5.           The recast proposal was drawn up on the basis of a preliminary consolidation, in all official languages, of Regulation (EC) No 417/2002 and the instruments amending it, carried out by the Publications Office of the European Union, by means of a data-processing system. Where the Articles have been given new numbers, the correlation between the old and the new numbers is shown in a table set out in Annex II to the recast Regulation.

Proposal for a

REGULATION OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL

on the accelerated phasing-in of double-hull or equivalent design requirements for single-hull oil tankers

(Recast)

THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, and in particular Article Ö 100 Õ (2) thereof,

Having regard to the proposal from the European Commission,

After transmission of the draft legislative act to the national Parliaments,

Having regard to the opinion of the European Economic and Social Committee[4],

Having regard to the opinion of the Committee of the Regions[5],

Acting in accordance with the ordinary legislative procedure,

Whereas:

ò new

(1) Regulation (EC) No 417/2002 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 18 February 2002 on the accelerated phasing-in of double-hull or equivalent design requirements for single-hull oil tankers and repealing Council Regulation (EC) No 2978/94[6] has been substantially amended several times[7]. Since further amendments are to be made, it should be recast in the interests of clarity.

ê 417/2002 recital 1 (adapted)

(2) Within the framework of the common transport policy, measures Ö should Õ be taken to enhance safety and prevent pollution in maritime transport.

ê 417/2002 recital 2 (adapted)

(3) The Ö Union Õ is seriously concerned by the shipping accidents involving oil tankers and the associated pollution of its coast-lines and harm to its fauna and flora and other marine resources.

ê 417/2002 recital 3

(4) In its communication 'a common policy on safe seas, the Commission underlined the request of the extraordinary Council on Environment and Transport of 25 January 1993 to support the action in the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) on the reduction of the safety gap between new and existing ships by upgrading and/or phasing out existing ships.

ê 417/2002 recital 4

(5) In its Resolution on a common policy on safe seas[8], the European Parliament welcomed the Commission communication and called in particular for action to be taken to improve tanker safety standards.

ê 417/2002 recital 5

(6) By its Resolution of 8 June 1993 on a common policy on safe seas[9], the Council fully supported the objectives of the Commission communication.

ê 417/2002 recital 6

(7) In its Resolution on the oil slick off the French coast adopted on 20 January 2000, the European Parliament welcomed any efforts by the Commission to bring forward the date by which oil tankers will be obliged to have a double-hull construction.

ê 1726/2003 recital 9

(8) The European Parliament in its Resolution on the 'Prestige' oil tanker disaster off the coast of Galicia of 21 November 2002 called for stronger measures that can enter into force more rapidly, and stated that this new disaster has again underlined the need for effective action at international and EU level in order significantly to improve maritime safety.

ê 417/2002 recital 7

(9) TheIMO has established, in the International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships, 1973 and the Protocol of 1978 related thereto (MARPOL 73/78), internationally agreed pollution prevention rules affecting the design and operation of oil tankers. Member States are Parties to MARPOL 73/78.

ê 417/2002 recital 8

(10) According to Article 3.3 of MARPOL 73/78, that Convention does not apply to warships, naval auxiliary or other ships owned or operated by a State and used only for government non-commercial services.

ê 417/2002 recital 9

(11) Comparison of tanker age and accident statistics shows increasing accident rates for older ships. It has been internationally agreed that the adoption of the 1992 amendments to MARPOL 73/78 requiring the application of the double-hull or equivalent design standards to existing single-hull oil tankers when they reach a certain age will provide those tankers with a higher degree of protection against accidental oil pollution in the event of collision or stranding.

ê 417/2002 recital 10 (adapted)

(12) It is in the Ö Union's Õ interest to adopt measures to ensure that oil tankers entering into ports and offshore terminals Ö or anchoring in an area Õ under the jurisdiction of Member States and oil tankers flying the flags of Member States comply with Regulation Ö 20 Õ of Annex I of MARPOL 73/78 as revised in Ö 2004 Õ by Resolution MEPC Ö 117(52) adopted by the IMO's Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC) Õ in order to reduce the risk of accidental oil pollution in European waters.

ê 457/2007 recital 4 (adapted)

(13) Ö Resolution MEPC 114(50), adopted on 4 December 2003, introduced a new Regulation 21 into Annex I to MARPOL 73/78 on the prevention of oil pollution from oil tankers when carrying heavy grade oil (HGO) which bans the carriage of HGO in single-hull tankers. Õ Paragraphs 5, 6 and 7 of Regulation Ö 21 Õ provide for the possibility of exemptions from the application of certain provisions of Ö that Õ Regulation. The statement by the Italian Presidency of the European Council on behalf of the European Union, recorded in the official report of the MEPC on its fiftieth session (MEPC 50/3), expresses a political commitment to refrain from making use of these exemptions.

ê 417/2002 recital 11 (adapted)

(14) Amendments to MARPOL 73/78 adopted by the IMO on 6 March 1992 entered into force on 6 July 1993. These measures impose double-hull or equivalent design requirements for oil tankers delivered on or after 6 July 1996 aimed at preventing oil pollution in the event of collision or stranding. Within these amendments, a phasing-out scheme for single-hull oil tankers delivered before that date took effect from 6 July 1995 requiring tankers delivered before 1 June 1982 to comply with the double-hull or equivalent design standards not later than 25 years and, in some cases, 30 years after the date of their delivery. Such existing single-hull oil tankers would not be allowed to operate beyond Ö 2005 Õ and, in some cases, 2012 unless they comply with the double-hull or equivalent design requirements of Regulation Ö 19 Õ of Annex I of MARPOL 73/78. For existing single-hull oil tankers delivered after 1 June 1982 or those delivered before 1 June 1982 and which have been converted to comply with the requirements of MARPOL 73/78 on segregated ballast tanks and their protective location, this deadline will be reached at the latest in 2026.

ê 417/2002 recital 12 (adapted)

(15) Important amendments to Regulation Ö 20 Õ of Annex I of MARPOL 73/78 were adopted on 27 April 2001 by the 46th session of the MEPC by Resolution MEPC 95(46) Ö and on 4 December 2003 by Resolution MEPC 111(50) Õ in which a new accelerated phasing-out scheme for single-hull oil tankers was introduced. The respective final dates by which tankers must comply with Regulation Ö 19 Õ of Annex I of MARPOL 73/78 depend on the size and age of the ship. Oil tankers in that scheme are therefore divided into three categories according to their tonnage, construction and age. All these categories, including the lowest one, Ö Category Õ 3, are important for trade Ö within the Union Õ .

ê 417/2002 recital 13 (adapted)

(16) The final date by which a single-hull oil tanker is to be phased out is the anniversary of the date of delivery of the ship, according to a schedule starting in 2003 until Ö 2005 Õ for Category 1 oil tankers, and until Ö 2010 Õ for Category 2 and 3 oil tankers.

ê 417/2002 recital 15 (adapted)

(17) Regulation Ö 20 of Annex I to MARPOL 73/78 Õ introduces a requirement that Ö all single-hull Õ oil tankers may only continue to operate subject to compliance with a Condition Assessment Scheme (CAS), adopted on 27 April 2001 by Resolution MEPC 94(46) Ö as amended by Resolution MEPC 99(48) of 11 October 2002 and by Resolution MEPC 112(50) of 4 December 2003 Õ. The CAS imposes an obligation that the flag State administration issues a Statement of Compliance and is involved in the CAS survey procedures. Ö The CAS is designed to detect structural weaknesses in ageing oil tankers and should apply to all oil tankers above the age of 15 years. Õ

ê 417/2002 recital 16 (adapted)

(18) Regulation Ö 20.5 of Annex I to MARPOL 73/78 Õ allows for an exception for Category 2 and 3 oil tankers to operate, under certain circumstances, beyond the time-limit of their phasing-out. Regulation Ö 20.8.2 of the same Annex Õ gives the right for Parties to MARPOL 73/78 to deny entry into the ports or offshore terminals under their jurisdiction to oil tankers allowed to operate under this exception. Member States have declared their intention to use this right. Decision to have recourse to this right Ö should Õ be communicated to the IMO.

ê 417/2002 recital 17

(19) It is important to ensure that the provisions in this Regulation do not endanger the safety of crew or oil tankers in search of a safe haven or a place of refuge.

ê 417/2002 recital 18

(20) In order to allow shipyards in Member States to repair single-hull oil tankers, Member States may make exceptions to allow entry into their ports of such vessels, provided they are not carrying any cargo.

ê 219/2009 Art 1, Annex pt. 7.4

ð new

(21) ð The Commission should be empowered to adopt delegated acts in accordance with Article 290 of the Treaty for the purpose of amending ï certain references to the relevant Regulations in MARPOL 73/78 and to Resolutions MEPC 111(50) and 94(46), in order to align the references with amendments to those Regulations and Resolutions adopted by theIMO, in so far as such amendments do not broaden the scope of this Regulation, Since those measures are of general scope and are designed to amend non-essential elements of Regulation (EC) No 417/2002, they must be adopted in accordance with the regulatory procedure with scrutiny provided for in Article 5a of Decision 1999/468/EC.[10]
