PR(07)47: Iceland fails to implement Directive on enhancing port security


The EFTA Surveillance Authority has decided to send a reasoned opinion to Iceland for failure to adopt the measures necessary to implement Directive 2005/65/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 26 October 2005 on enhancing port security.

Iceland should have implemented the Directive by 15 June 2007.

The Directive introduces measures to enhance port security in the face of threats of security incidents. It shall also ensure that security measures taken pursuant to Regulation (EC) No 725/2004 benefit from enhanced port security.

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 the matter before the EFTA Court. Iceland has been given three months to take the measures necessary to comply with the reasoned opinion.
