Montenegro supported to participate in the Paris MoU Expert Training on the Human Element

One Port State Control Officer from Montenegro was supported by EMSA’s project for the Enlargement countries to attend the Expert Training on the Human Element, arranged by the Paris MoU and held on 9-12 October 2018 in The Hague, The Netherlands.


The training focussed on a range of subjects related to the human element, not only concerning legislative issues (referring to the Maritime Labour Convention and the STCW Convention) but also on personal styles and ways of communicating by a PSCO, including the effect this has on others.


Montenegro is a cooperating state of the Paris MoU and is invited to the organisation’s seminars and trainings. Funding from EMSA’s project made the participation of one PSCO from Montenegro to the training possible.


The EU regime on Port State Control (Directive 2009/16/EU) has been based on the pre-existing structure of the Paris MoU, and the progress of the enlargement countries in the Paris MoU context is therefore of high interest of the EU.
