The CETMO, in its capacity as Technical Secretariat of the Transport Group of the Western
Mediterranean -GTMO 5+5-, has undertaken a line of work called “Maritime Navigation
Safety Fee”.

The study on this line of work should provide arguments as to the
appropriateness and desirability of introducing such a fee and the assessment of its
economic and legal feasibility together with the proposed terms of its recovery.
To carry out this study, CETMO invites you to submit your proposal and CV before 5th
August 2011 to the email address shown below.
OBJECTIVES OF THE STUDY
The main objectives of the study are as follows:
- To analyse the external navigation-aid systems currently implemented by coastal
States, particularly by GTMO 5+5 Member States.
- To determine what is required (particularly in terms of finance) to develop these
systems, in keeping with the foreseeable growth of maritime traffic and the relevant
international regulations.
- To outline the operational procedures and legal mechanisms required to introduce a
maritime navigation safety fee to finance said systems.
- To analyse the possible impact of such a fee on coastal States and ships.
- To set out the fundamental arguments, based on the above-mentioned analyses,
that will draw the attention of the relevant international institutions to the potential
advantages of the proposal.
