Please find all details below. The SEArica Secretariat remains at your disposal for any further information you may require.

The project “Blue Ports” started in September 2017 when the Port Reception Facility Directive was being revised and the IMO Ballast water management convention just entered into force. The partners worked for 3 years to set out ways to improve the management of ships effluents.

This event will be a great opportunity to learn more about the achievements of the project and exchange views on potential next steps to be taken at the Atlantic and European level. There will be three sessions dedicated to the three main issues tackled by Blue Ports:

  • Facilitating the implementation of the IMO Ballast Water Management Convention
  • Monitoring and protecting marine water in ports
  • Fostering the development of cutting-edge port services for ships effluents

Should you have any queries please contact Ms Cristina GANAPINI:

What is an Intergroup?

The Seas, Rivers, Islands and Coastal Areas Intergroup is one of the 27 Intergroups that were approved on 11 December 2019 by the Conference of Presidents for the 9th legislature of the European Parliament. Intergroups can be formed by MEPs from any political group and any parliamentary committee with a view to holding informal exchanges of views on particular issues and promoting contact between MEPs and civil society.

The Seas, Rivers, Islands and Coastal Areas Intergroup brings together more than 100 MEPs from 7 different political groups and 23 Member States.

Intergroups are not Parliament bodies and therefore may not express Parliament's opinion.

Intergroups are subject to internal rules adopted by the Conference of Presidents on 16 December 1999 (last updated on 11 September 2014), which set out the conditions under which intergroups may be established at the beginning of each parliamentary term and their operating rules.
