PR(09)57: Iceland fails to incorporate rules relating to maritime security inspections


The EFTA Surveillance Authority has decided to deliver a reasoned opinion to Iceland for failure to incorporate a Regulation relating to maritime security inspections.

The Regulation lays down the procedures for conducting maritime security inspections.

Iceland should have incorporated this Regulation by 8 November 2008.

The purpose of the Authority's reasoned opinion is to give the State in question a last chance to take corrective measures before the Authority decides whether to bring these matters before the EFTA Court. Iceland has been given three months to take the measures necessary to comply with the reasoned opinion.
