The UK has implemented these provisions.
Regulation 13 of the Merchant Shipping (Vessel Traffic Monitoring and Reporting Requirements) Regulations 2004 covers measures to be taken in the event of exceptionally bad weather or sea conditions.
The Government also have procedures in place so that if an incident is reported to the Maritime and Coastguard Agency, a counter pollution and response officer and, if necessary, the Secretary of State's Representative for Maritime Salvage and Intervention (SOSREP) will be alerted.
The Government have made no assessment of the progress made by other EU member states in implementing these provisions.
