The initial part of the project called “Harmonizing national, regional and county contingency plans in the Adriatic”, envisages inter alia one analysis of source documents governing the protection of the sea against oil and HNS, including (a) general and specific regulations and (b) national and regional contingency plans, with a view to identifying points in common, bottlenecks and shortcomings in applicable rules and regulations.
