New rules for sailing on Flensburg Fjord

New rules for sailing on Flensburg Fjord

01-05-2017 15:30:00

Denmark and Germany have entered an agreement on common guidelines for the approval of ships for passenger services on Flensburg Fjord. In the past, different rules in the two countries have caused problems for shipping companies.

"I am very pleased that the agreement creates clear guidelines for ships wishing to sail passengers between Denmark and Germany on the Flensburg Fjord. Different rules in the two countries have previously caused great frustration for the affected ship owners", Says Business Minister Brian Mikkelsen.

"At the same time, the agreement also meets demand from the tourism industry and the community to make it easier for these ships to be approved. It is for the benefit of tourism, business and the region."

So far, it has given rise to ambiguity about required standards and certificates when, for example, a German passenger ship, approved under German regulations for inland waterways, arrives at the Danish part of Flensburg Fjord. That is what the agreement is about.

Danish operators wishing to transport passengers under the agreement must contact the Danish Maritime Authority. German operators must contact the German maritime authorities.
