Guidelines towards achieving a Good Navigation Status - Study
In 2015 the European Commission DG MOVE published the Invitation to tender N° MOVE/B3/2015-224 concerning “Study on support measures for the implementation of the TEN-T Core network related to sea ports, inland ports and inland waterway transport”. The consortium coordinated by STC-Group Holding BV with partners STC-NESTRA, viadonau, PLANCO, Inland Navigation Europe and Flemish Ministry of Mobility and Public Works, prepared a detailed technical proposal and was assigned the contract. The contract for this work was signed on 31st of December 2015 with a maximum duration of 24 months. This... study provides input on the notion of Good Navigation Status (GNS) in article 15.3 of the TEN-T Regulation 1315/2013 to be achieved (and thereafter preserved) by 31 December 2030 according to the article 38 of the Regulation. Moreover, in accordance with Article 54, the implementation of the core network shall be evaluated by the Commission by 31 December 2023. The GNS study also provides input for this evaluation and the possible revision of the TEN-T Regulation.
