Lately, mass media publications about conflicts with environmental inspectors engaged in maritime transport state control have become more frequent, resulting in certain financial risks by the parties to foreign trade and transport relationship.
Unfortunately, today there is no single regulatory act fixing the environmental inspectors powers and the environmental control procedure. Absence of systematic regulation of maritime environmental inspections causes often wrongful law enforcement and abuse of inspectors’ powers.
One of the Odessa Region grain terminals filed a request to Interlegal on complex analysis of legislation governing maritime environmental inspections.
Interlegal lawyers analyzed the Ukrainian legislation governing maritime environmental inspections and procedure of radiologic and other types of maritime transport control, followed by granting the relevant practical recommendations to the client.
Interlegal lawyers Mikhail Selivanov and Ellina Romanova, under the general supervision of senior lawyer Andrey Perepelitsa, led the case.
