France Wants Tighter Rules For Ships Near Europe

Wednesday, February 09, 2000
France plans to press for tougher maritime safety rules within a 200-mile radius of Europe, said French transport ministry officials, adding that they would like the European Union to force ships to identify themselves and be ready for inspection inside the limit. Currently, ships only have to make themselves known if there is an accident. Officials also fell that flags of convenience should be banned. This does not mean countries would not be allowed to run large fleets, but they would be held to tighter rules. France also plans to double the number of its port inspectors to 100 over the next two years and improve its database of ships calling at French ports.
