Workshop with the European Maritime Safety Agency

ChemSAR and HAZARD projects organised a workshop with EMSA (European Maritime Safety Agency) experts. The workshop handled, e.g., regulatory framework, EMSA’s information services on HNS, and lessons learned from SOP’s. The project partners visited EMSA in Lisbon on 31st August 2017

The joint EMSA Workshop was found mutually useful. ChemSAR project received vast amount of useful information, for example, on different kinds of information available at EMSA in relation to HNS incidents. EMSA representatives saw advantages in the cooperation with projects as it is the projects, which create new information and organize exercises where EMSA information and databases can be used. This enhances the exchange of experiences and information perhaps not otherwise possible.

We thank EMSA for hosting the workshop!
