Belgium-Brussels: Study on Flag State Responsibilities and ‘Open Registers’ for Vessels Registration – (CINEA/EMFAF/2023/3.6.3)
Section I: Contracting authority
Section II: Object
Study on Flag State Responsibilities and ‘Open Registers’ for Vessels Registration – (CINEA/EMFAF/2023/3.6.3)
The main objective of the study is to provide the contracting authority and the European Commission (in particular the DG Maritime Affairs and Fisheries) with an up-to-date analysis of the economic dynamics and the effects of the use of so-called ‘open registers’ for sea-going vessels (often referred to as ‘flags of convenience’). The Joint Communication of the Commission and the High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy on international ocean governance published in June 2022 specifically identified the fulfilment of flag States responsibilities by those acting as open registers as one of the priorities for the EU International Ocean Governance agenda. It announced the Commission intention to launch a ‘study exposing the models of operators using open registers and the various actors involved in the functioning of these registers, as well as proposing solutions to address problems identified’.
Please consult the tender specifications (Section 1.5 – ‘Place of performance’).
