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).

Environment

With the same increased sensitivity and with intense sense of responsibility in the face of an already internationally burdened environment, the Authority deals with the various environmental issues within port areas.


As already mentioned, the Authority commenced a study for the application of a programme for environmental management (Ecoports Foundation). It is a research and at the same time a development programme which is financed by the European Union and its purpose is for each port to be enabled to confront its environmental issues with financially viable options.

For this reason it has begun to gradually apply the Environmental Policy Code which lays down the fundamental principles of environmental management which can be applied at ports, with the Authority itself aiming at creating its own environmental planning which will cover its needs.
