Maritime transport security
With maritime transport on the increase, ensuring security is the primary objective. To that end, we take care of the adoption and implementation of national and international maritime law, conventions and other mandatory instruments of the International Maritime Organization, and European Union law. In the context of its EU membership, Slovenia actively participates in the formulation of future regulations and policies in a wide area that falls within the framework of the European transport policy and the Integrated Maritime Policy and touches on the digitalisation of maritime transport, safety and security, education and training of seafarers, and the social agenda in maritime traffic.
We also actively cooperate with the International Maritime Organization, the International Hydrographic Organization, the Paris Memorandum of Understanding on Port State Control, and other international organisations and institutions.
Key activities aimed at improving security in maritime transport include the upgrading of the Traffic Control and Crisis Management Centre, the management of the national SafeSeaNet system, the establishment of a common environment for the exchange of information on maritime surveillance, the hydrographic measurements of the Slovenian sea and the issuing of sea charts. In order to reduce administrative burdens on the maritime economy, we established the National Maritime Single Window to follow technological developments and digitalisation in the field of electronic commerce.
