How data are collected and managed

The Port Management Body (PMB) has internal access to the necessary data and can therefore measure this indicator independently.

Current limitations

There is no check on whether the circular procurement policy is ambitious enough for the given tender.

The measurement is restricted to the port area, a legally defined territory which is under the management of the Port Authority (PA) or Port Management Body (PMB). For example, the boundaries of the Flemish ports are determined by a decision of the Flemish Government.
