EXPLANATORY NOTE
(This note is not part of the instrument and does not purport to be a legal interpretation)
These Regulations give effect to Commission Implementing Directive 2014/111/EU of 17 December 2014 amending Directive 2009/15/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 23 April 2009 on common rules and standards for ship inspection and survey organisations and for the relevant activities of maritime administrations, and give full effect to Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No. 1355/2014 of 17 December 2014 amending Regulation (EC) No. 391/2009 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 23 April 2009 on common rules and standards for ship inspection and survey organisations.
The purpose of the Regulations is to amend the definition of “Directive” and “EC Regulation” in the European Communities (Ship Inspection and Survey Organisations) Regulations 2011 ( S.I. No. 275 of 2011 ) to take into account the adoption on 17 December 2014 of Commission Implementing Directive 2014/111/EU and Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No. 1355/2014 respectively. The Commission Implementing Directive and Regulation amend the definition of “international conventions” in Directive 2009/15/EC and Regulation (EC) No. 391/2009 so as to exclude certain paragraphs of a new IMO Instruments Implementation Code (III Code) and certain sections of an IMO Code for Recognized Organizations (RO Code) from application in an EU context as they are incompatible with EU legislation.
