SSN (SafeSeaNet)

After the accident with the tanker Erika in 1999 and later with the Prestige several directives from the European Union were issued  for the prevention of accidents and pollution at sea, including the Directive 2002/59 / EC. This directive has the following objectives:

• promote safety and efficiency of maritime traffic in the European Union

• enable more effective response to incidents and dangerous situations at sea

• Early detection of potentially risky vessels

SafeSeaNet is a European Maritime Information Network and managed by the European Maritime Safety Agency (EMSA).
