Public consultation on revision of EU SRR
The European Commission has launched an online public consultation on the evaluation of the Ship Recycling Regulation (EU SRR) that will run until 7 Jun 2023. The EU SRR was adopted in 2013 with the aim to provide a regulatory framework for the recycling of EU-flagged ships.
Comments and input may be submitted via the online public consultation webpage at link. The online public consultation will end on 7 Jun 2023.
The ongoing evaluation aims to:
- assess how well the Regulation has been applied and its impact to date
- assess how well it contributes to the general policy objectives of the European Green Deal and the circular economy action plan
- identify shortcomings with its implementation and enforcement.
- Depending on the findings of the evaluation, the Commission might then launch a revision process for the Regulation.
