Participation in European research projects
The EHMC contributes to European research projects. From within its membership, it provides a group of experts in port safety and environmental issues, in large and small ports. As a reference group, EHMC may;
  • assess any implications of implementing research proposals and measures for European port operations
  • assess the equal implementation of proposals among the ports
  • gather information on best practice in different ports
  • disseminate information of professional interest
  • invite comments from the wider membership on drafts and deliverables

SHORT STAY OF GOODS ON THE FRONT QUAY

Dirk Vernaeve, Port Commander Port of Ghent, Belgium, has the following request;

“In Belgium we have, on a legal basis, the possibility that dry bulk goods, general cargo or containers and trailers can be stored near the ship on the quay for a short period before loading or after discharging, on the so called front quay.

On this front quay cargo can be handled of other commodities than those generally handled. The terminal though may have no environmental permission.

It can be advantageous for the shipping business that the permission is given by the Harbour Master for a short stay of the goods on the front quay; a new environmental permission for that specific commodity will take days or months. The Harbour Master however has the authority to give ad hoc permissions for a short stay on the front quay for all kinds of commodities. We want to ask


  • if in your port/country you have the possibility of storage for a short period

  • how you are dealing with dangerous goods, segregation, time of stay of goods on front quay, environmental rules

  • do you make a distinction between private or public quays, distance from the waterline you allow as front quay

  • is it the Harbour Master or his servants who are doing controls on this ship/shore interface or are other authorities involved.


it would be great if you could reply on our questionnaire;


Questionnaire "Short stay front quay permissions"
Questionnaire, to be sent, before beginning of December 2012, to d.vernaeve@havengent.be
