Malta - Transport


Short-term priorities:

  • Adoption of a strategy and timetable for the transposition and implementation of the acquis, particularly in the field of aviation and maritime transport (including maritime safety).

Assessment (November 2001)

Malta has no official strategy or schedule for transposing the acquis in the field of maritime and air transport. A maritime action plan has been drawn up, however.

Assessment (October 2002)

Malta has continued to progress with the alignment and implementation of maritime transport legislation, taking into account its latest developments, and in particular with the enforcement of maritime safety standards. It has continued to step up the administrative capacity of the Maritime Authority and has started to improve the flag State performance of the Maltese merchant fleet.

Assessment (November 2003)

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

Medium-term priorities:

  • Compliance with road transport (market access, road safety, rules for dangerous goods and taxation), maritime transport and aviation legislation (particularly air safety and air traffic management).

Assessment (November 2001)

Malta has made limited progress with regard to road and air transport, and some progress in the field of maritime transport.

Assessment (October 2002)

Malta has made little progress in aligning road transport legislation, notably access to the profession, fiscal harmonisation and transport of dangerous goods, or air transport legislation.

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.
