The People's Deputies call for amending the Trade Navigation Code of Ukraine

The relevant Bill (Reg. No. 3672) is being considered in the Committee on Transport and Connections.  

The authors deem necessary to adopt the amendments to the Trade Navigation Code of Ukraine with regard for the fact that its structure, contents, correlation of regulations and standards correspond to the situation of early 90th in Ukraine.

However, for the last 12 years the structure of sea and river transport and its management, effective legislation of Ukraine and international legal regulations of trade navigation have experienced profound changes. Nevertheless, the Trade Navigation Code has not been amended for this period of time.   

The amendments to the Trade Navigation Code aim at setting it in accordance with changes in legislation and particular statements and regulations of modern functioning practice of sea and river transport. The Bill also aims at adaptation of Ukrainian transport legislation to the European standards and at coordination with international legal regulations of trade navigation.

The Bill envisages setting the demand on legislative level concerning obligatory receipt of the International Marine Organization Identification Number by the vessels and navigation companies, more accurate definition of the technical inspection procedure, issue of the vessel´s documents.  

The authors propose a new modern definition of the term "seaport" and a number of articles that regulate the issues of management and State monitoring in the port, legal relations between the bodies of management, control and monitoring of the economic entities in the field of activity in the port.

The Bill also introduces the amendments to those statements of the Code that regulate commercial activity of the trade navigation subjects. 

The most part of the introduced amendments aim at unification of terminology used in the text of the Code, its coordination with other legislative acts of Ukraine or international agreements of Ukraine in the field of trade navigation.
