Greece updates its environmental legislation
Greece has recently made changes to the law regulating pollution of marine environment. Some of the changes concern penal sanctions and administrative fines for infringement of the regulations on ship-source pollution.
A polluter may be fined up to EUR 100,000 for any degradation of the sea water quality. A vessel imposed with a fine will be prohibited from sailing until the fine is paid or a bank guarantee is provided.
For further details including the obligation of the polluter, please find attached bulletin with information about penal sanctions and administrative fines, from our correspondent Kalimbassieries.
