Transport & Shipping

The draft Royal Decree determining the obligations for the establishment of shipping agents, was recently prepared to implement the legislation currently applicable to consignment (basically the revised State Ports and Merchant Shipping Law and the Maritime Shipping Law). 
It was published in the Official Journal of the EU the Council Directive (EU) 2018/131, of 23 January 2018, implementing the Agreement concluded by the European Community Shipowners’ Associations (ECSA) and the European Transport Workers’ Federation (ETF) to amend Council Directive 2009/13/EC of 16 February 2009.
