The Board of the EU Maritime Safety Agency (EMSA) has just elected the Director of the Danish Maritime Authority, Andreas Nordseth, as its new chairman. Admiral Nicola Carlone, Italy, was elected Vice-President.

"EMSA makes a very significant contribution to maritime security and environmental protection in Europe. In addition to ensuring a uniform implementation of EU legislation, EMSA does a great job to bring new technologies into play and digitalize shipping, which is also important for the Blue Denmark.

It is an honor to take the lead of the board and to help facilitate the strategic direction of the agency," says Andreas Nordseth, Director of the Danish Maritime Authority.

The EMSA Board, which consists of the 28 member states of the EU, Norway, Iceland, the European Commission and representatives of industry, is responsible for following the agency's work and defining strategic priorities.

Andreas Nordseth has been in charge of the board since 2009 and has extensive experience with EMSA's activities, which covers a wide-ranging pallet from the monitoring of oil spill preparedness to training ship inspectors and oversee the implementation of EU rules in practice.

EMSA was established in 2002 and is located in Lisbon. The agency has about 200 employees and a budget of around 54 million euros.
