New regulations in Greenland postponed

August 21st, 2013

It has been a hectic summer for AECO, CLIA Int. and CLIA Europe after the organizations where presented with the draft proposal for new shipping-regulations in Greenland. A comprehensive proposal introducing pilotage requirements, shipping lanes, ice classes and zoning of Greenland waters from 2014 already, would have closed the doors on most cruising in Greenland in coming years. The associations, together with Visit Greenland has therefore been united in comments to the authority, making the serious consequences clear. The proposal which should have passed this fall, have now been postponed with a tentative handling during 2014.
