Component 8 - Bilateral activities
Bilateral actions will be designed to best address the needs identified taking also into account their relevance to the achievement of the goals of the RTAP and the commitment of each beneficiary to implement the reforms supported by the project.
The bilateral actions will be identified by analysing the outcome of the regional actions implemented as well as on the basis of specific requests coming from the beneficiaries. All identified bilateral needs will be evaluated from the technical point of view by EMSA before being submitted for approval to the Contracting Authority together with an indication of the budget to be allocated.
As a complement to the regional activities planned, specific needs of each beneficiary will be addressed to enhance their capacity to give full implementation to international legislation and to further enhance maritime safety, maritime security and marine pollution prevention standards in the countries.
