Commission Opinion

of 15 May 1981

addressed to the Irish Government on the implementation of Council Directive 79/115/EEC concerning the pilotage of vessels by deep-sea pilots in the North Sea and English Channel

(81/399/EEC)

1. In its letter of 28 July 1980 the Irish Permanent Representation to the European Communities sent to the Commission, under Article 2 of Directive 79/115/EEC [1], the draft of a Ministerial measure whereby shipowners and captains of Irish ships are instructed to ensure that vessels flying the Irish flag which wish to be piloted, use in the North Sea and the English Channel only adequately qualified deep-sea pilots holding a certificate issued by the competent authority within a State bordering on the North Sea or English Channel in accordance with Article 1 (1) of the Directive, or holding a certificate considered to be equivalent.

2. Examination of this document has satisfied the Commission that the publication of the aforesaid measure will fully implement the provisions of the Directive which concern Ireland. The Commission suggests that the Irish Government should, while waiting for detailed information from the other governments concerned which would allow them to complete the text of the measure in question, already consider issuing a communication to its shipowners and sea captains covering points 1 and 2 of the draft submitted to the Commission.

Done at Brussels, 15 May 1981.

For the Commission

Georges Contogeorgis

Member of the Commission
