The professionals’ guide
The publication sheds light on EU port and transport-related policy and regulations. It gives a general overview of the content and state of decision-making of 46 selected European files, which relate to ports and transport. In addition to these files, some relevant documents (directives, guidelines, communications, draft texts, …) have been added. A glossary of the most important terms from the European jargon is to be found in the annexes of this document. In addition, the most important decision-making procedures are also explained. Harbour Light results from the cooperation between three organisations: the Flemish Port Commission (FPC), the National Ports Council (NPC, the Netherlands) and the European Sea Ports Organisation (ESPO).
