With the accession of Cyprus to the European Union matters relating to the unimpeded movement of passengers as per EU requirements have attained more significance for the Cypriot ports which represent the ‘gateway’ to the European Union at its south eastern boundary, in an especially sensitive area.

Dangerous Cargoes

Another chapter which preoccupies the Authority intensely in connection with safety in port areas, concerns dangerous cargoes which either in the form of goods or in the form of raw materials are transported through our ports. For information purposes it is reported that different cargoes in excess of 120.000 which arrive at our ports are classified as dangerous on the basis of the International Maritime Dangerous Goods Code (IMDG).


The dangerous goods belong to the following nine categories:

  • Category 1: Explosives
  • Category 2: Gases compressed. Liquefied or dissolved under pressure
  • Category 3: Flammable liquids
  • Category 4: Flammable solids
  • Category 5: Oxidizing agents
  • Category 6: Poisonous/Toxic materials
  • Category 7: Radioactive materials
  • Category 8: Corrosive materials
  • Category 9: Various dangerous materials

The Authority does not allow the storage/stay of goods belonging to Category 1: Explosives in the port areas and hence it requires the consignees to arrange for the transfer of the goods out of the port immediately following their delivery. These goods always carry the requisite discerning markings so that the personnel would be in a position to identify the danger of such cargoes and act appropriately.

Environment
