Fourth Session of the Commission on Legal Issues and Insurance

The 4th session of the Commission on Legal Affairs and Insurance was held on November 14, 2018

 

The following agenda items were:

 

  1. Amendments to the Maritime Code
  2. Ordinance on Determining the Health Capability of Crews of Maritime Ships
  3. Maritime Domain and Seaports Act
  4. Law on Transport in Linear and Occasional Coastal Maritime Traffic
  5. Ordinance on the highest permissible noise levels in the area where people live and work
  6. Work Program for 2019

 

It is envisaged that the Draft Amendments to the Maritime Code will be on the agenda of the Government meeting of 12 December 2018, which submits the final proposal for adoption to the Parliament of the Republic of Croatia. According to that, the remaining issues related to the Maritime Code were discussed: tonnage tax, yacht cruise definition and question clearing time.

The Ordinance on Determining the Health Capability of Crews of Maritime Ships has highlighted the problem of the unconstitutionality of a family medicine physician's statement on the health of seafarers, which causes ship-owners major material and other problems for the specifics of work and life on board.

It is proposed to initiate an amendment to the Ordinance on the Determination of the Health Conditions of Crews of Maritime Boats and to create a Working Group for the Amendment of the Regulations. It has also been noted that seafarers' psychological testing is only for employment, which is not enough and it is also necessary to initiate a change of tests at the Chamber of Psychologists.

It was emphasized that the proposal of the Maritime Domain and Seaports Act from September 2018 was too liberal regarding the quality of the market and business of our shipping companies. Also, the question of mooring and drifting should be settled by regarded Law because it was announced that in 2019, services of mooring and drifting should be paid to port captains at each take-off in coastal liner shipping.

The addition to this will be a proposal related to noise in ports and amendments to the Article. 149. ZPDML which defines the services of mooring and drifting. Completed draft proposal and amendments to the ZPDML will be aligned with the members and submitted to the Ministry of the Sea, Transport and Infrastructure.

Regarding the Law on Transport in Linear and Occasional Coastal Maritime Traffic, the abolition of the Agency for Coastal Maritime Traffic is foreseen. Also, for the year 2019 other changes are foreseen. The Work Program for 2019 of the Commission for Legal Affairs and Insurance will include the discussion and potential amendments to the Law on Transport in Regular and Occasional Coastal Shipping and the Rulebook on Conditions for Carriage of Maritime Cabotages in the Republic of Croatia.
