Via libera a santuario balene in Atlantico meridionale
13 spt 2016 - In una mozione presentata al World Conservation Congress che si è da poco concluso alle Hawaii, l'Unione internazionale per la conservazione della natura (Iucn) ha chiesto l'istituzione di un santuario delle balene nell'oceano Atlantico meridionale. In seguito alla mozione, sostenuta anche dalla ong Born Free Foundation che ne dà notizia, l'istituzione del santuario sarà ora proposta dai governi di Argentina, Brasile, Gabon, Sudafrica e Uruguay alla 66/a riunione della Commissione baleniera internazionale (Iwc), in programma in Slovenia a ottobre. Il santuario si estenderebbe dalle coste orientali di Uruguay, Brasile e Argentina all'Africa Occidentale, e collegherebbe 30 Aree marine potette dove vivono 19 specie di balene e delfini. In passato diversi tentativi presso l'Iwc per istituire il santuario sono falliti, il più recente dei quali, nel 2014, per soli quattro voti. Per andare a buon fine la proposta dovrà ottenere il 75% dei voti dei membri del Iwc. In questo quadro, rileva la Born Free Foundation, il sostegno dello Iucn potrebbe fare la differenza per raggiungere i voti necessari.

WEIGHING OF CONTAINERS: MEMBER STATES TO BRING CLARITY ON THE NATIONAL IMPLEMENTATION AND TO TAKE A COORDINATED APPROACH
20 April 2016 - As from July 2016, all “shippers” must declare to the carrier in advance the verified weight of packed containers. ESPO has joined the European organisations representing Shippers, Freight Forwarders and Terminal Operators in the call on national authorities to avoid any disruption in the logistics chain and to take action in coordination to preserve level playing field. To ensure that the implementation of the new legal requirements does not create competition distortion through a patchwork of varying national measures, Member States should pursue a coordinated approach, taking into consideration the national guidelines of other Member States when deciding on national rules. Commonly accepted guidelines between supply chain actors and national authorities could minimise distortion of competition and ensure smooth functioning of the SOLAS requirements. Being only two months away from the entry into force of the SOLAS convention, Member States should bring clarity as soon as possible. In November 2014, the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) agreed upon rules for the mandatory weighing of all sea-bound containers to be loaded on a vessel. The undersigned organisations accept these rules and are committed to working towards the successful implementation of the new legal obligation.
