Dear All,

For information, please find attached guidance issued by ECSA covering Frequently Asked Questions in respect of the ban on Russian flag ships entering EU ports. The guidance expands on the measures included in Article 3ea of Regulation EU 2022/576, which states:  

“Article 3ea

1.   It shall be prohibited to provide access after 16 April 2022 to ports in the territory of the Union to any vessel registered under the flag of Russia.

2.   Paragraph 1 shall apply to vessels that have changed their Russian flag or their registration, to the flag or register of any other State after 24 February 2022.

3.   For the purposes of this Article, a vessel means:

(a) a ship falling within the scope of the relevant international conventions;

(b)  a yacht, of 15 metres in length or more, which does not carry cargo and carrying no more than 12 passengers; or

(c)  recreational craft or personal watercraft as defined in Directive 2013/53/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council (*5).

4.   Paragraph 1 shall not apply in the case of a vessel in need of assistance seeking a place of refuge, of an emergency port call for reasons of maritime safety, or for saving life at sea.

5.   By way of derogation from paragraph 1, the competent authorities may authorise a vessel to access a port, under such conditions as they deem appropriate, after having determined that the access is necessary for:

(a)  the purchase, import or transport into the Union of natural gas and oil, including refined petroleum products, titanium, aluminium, copper, nickel, palladium and iron ore, as well as certain chemical and iron products as listed in Annex XXIV;

(b)  the purchase, import or transport of pharmaceutical, medical, agricultural and food products, including wheat and fertilisers whose import, purchase and transport is allowed under this Regulation;

(c) humanitarian purposes;

(d) transport of nuclear fuel and other goods strictly necessary for the functioning of civil nuclear capabilities; or

(e) the purchase, import or transport into the Union of coal and other solid fossil fuels, as listed in Annex XXII until 10 August 2022.

6.   The Member State concerned shall inform the other Member States and the Commission of any authorisation granted under paragraph 5 within two weeks of the authorisation;

(*5) Directive 2013/53/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 20 November 2013 on recreational craft and personal watercraft and repealing Directive 94/25/EC (OJ L 354, 28.12.2013, p. 90)”.

The guidance was issued by ECSA to member associations of the Ukraine Task Force established by the International Chamber of Shipping, of which FONASBA is a member. Accordingly, it can be further circulated to your association member companies.

We trust the information is useful and are very grateful to ECSA for making it available.
