Report presented on 25 April 2019 by the European Commission on the implementation of Directive 2005/65/EC on enhancing port security and the effectiveness of measures taken during the period 2014-2018.

Further information:

Directive 2005/65/EC complements the measures adopted in 2004 by means of Regulation (EC) No 725/2004 on enhancing ship and port facility security. The scope of application of that Regulation was limited to cover security measures on board ships and the immediate interface between ships and ports.

The objective of the Directive is to improve security coordination in areas of ports not covered by the Regulation and also to ensure that the enhancement of port security can support the security measures taken under the Regulation.

Article 19 of the Directive states that the Commission is to assess compliance with the Directive and the effectiveness of measures taken by 15 December 2008 and every five years thereafter. The first report was adopted in January 2009 and the second report in November 2013.

This third report describes the measures which have been taken in order to promote the implementation of standardised port security measures across the Union, progress made during the last five-year reference period and the continued problems which have arisen during the implementation period.
