Shipping and Transport Bulletin
April – May 2018
The Italian Ministry of Infrastructures and Transports specified certain criteria that the Port System Authorities must take into account when comparing applications for the renewal and/or issue of concessions pursuant to Article 18 of Law No. 84/94. Let’s learn more about said criteria.
Regulation (EU) 2017/352 on port services and financial transparency of ports represents today a fundamental regulatory text for our industry. Let’s see why before starting to examine it article by article.

Finally, we have commented a recent ruling of the Italian Supreme Court on the validity of an arbitration clause referred to in a bill of lading.
We want to thank our colleagues at Nctm Brussels’s office for their contributions highlighting the most significant actions taken by EU institutions in the international shipping and trade sector.
