Rome, Italy (PortSEurope) March 22, 2019 – Italy’s government has approved a decree on the monitoring and reporting obligations for carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions generated by the sea transport sector and to introduce a system of fines for the violation of the regulations.
The purpose is linked to the need for all sectors of the economy, including the international maritime transport sector, to contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.
The text quantifies the administrative pecuniary sanction differently, depending on whether the unlawful conduct consists of total or partial non-compliance with the monitoring obligations, or the violation is due to the failure to prepare and transmit the monitoring plan or to comply with the verification obligations.
The activity of supervision and assessment, for the purpose of imposing sanctions, is carried out by the Coast Guard.
