Short-term priorities:

  • alignment of legislation on maritime safety.

Assessment (November 2000)

Alignment in the field of maritime safety has begun, but major efforts are needed to ensure that it is implemented.

Assessment (November 2001)

Although Lithuanian legislation on maritime safety has been aligned with the acquis, more work is required to put in place the administrative structures and capacity necessary to apply the acquis.

Assessment (October 2002)

Legislative alignment in the maritime sector is progressing well. Training of maritime safety personnel is on-going. Following the recent setting-up of the independent Lithuanian Maritime Safety Administration, staff levels will need to be increased in order further to improve the flag State performance.

Assessment (November 2003)

Please refer to the fact sheets on the adoption of the Community acquis.

Medium-term priorities:

  • further efforts on alignment with the Community acquis, in particular on maritime (safety) and road and rail transport;
  • provision of the necessary investment for transport infrastructure (particularly the extension of trans-European networks).

Assessment (October 1999)

No progress has been observed in this area.

Assessment (November 2000)

There has been no progress on these priorities.

Assessment (November 2001)

Lithuania has made significant progress in the fields of road and air transport safety. Efforts should now focus on the fiscal harmonisation of road transport and on maritime safety.

Assessment (October 2002)

Overall, the Accession Partnership priorities in this area have been partially met. Implementation of the measures laid down in the Action Plan is on track.

Assessment (November 2003)

Please refer to the fact sheets on the adoption of the Community acquis.

Following the signing of the Accession Treaty on 16 April 2003, Cyprus, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Poland, Slovakia and Slovenia acceded to the European Union on 1 May 2004.
