Maritime Transport and its International aspects

Safety, competition, and the environment are some of the very sensitive issues because of their power to influence and effect on the international law that is related to nationwide dominion and the exploitation and development of marine resources.

Maritime transport policies between industrialized and non-industrialized countries

There is a clash of interest between the industrialized countries, which are oriented as a free market and other developing countries which also seek to guard their own maritime markets as is constantly the case with trade and industry issues at international level.

However, it has already been described as the countries that are non-industrialized try to limit the notion of the high seas in so that they could preserve their control over their resources in the widest likely area. The same countries that are non-industrialized also have a tendency to bind their own ports. When these non-industrialized countries also have open registers, they are also passionate defenders against the control of port states since under the last rule. The advantages are substantially reduced after deriving from evading safety and environmental controls.

You could actually eliminate such evasion through the annex, not only of the port state control, but also of the coastal state control to transit ships. The possibility of extending these powers to the high seas has already been dealt with. However at present, port state control only applies to the ships in port, while the coastal state control can only be manifested where there has been an accident or a serious incident.

Rigorous action by the Community will be difficult if its goal is to change the international shipping law, although it could grab the support of most if not all of the countries that are industrialized by promising to have safer and more environmentally friendly shipping. And a risk would be taken: Flags of expediency would also drop one of their most dominant attractions. But then again, it should also be put to thought that such tactful action has its alternatives, like by not complying with some definite international rules, it might prove to be a strong independent incentive to the improvement of the whole action.

On another context, one that is somewhat commercial, the recommencement of complex transport negotiations is still crucial if you want to avoid a boost in some protectionist measures. This was not really an ample guarantee despite having the parties present when the negotiations were balanced thus making them agreed to limited warning measures.
