A series of amendments to the Convention on Facilitation of International Maritime Traffic that seeks to boost seafarers’ rights to shore leave have come into effect in an attempt to streamline and approve procedures for ships’ arrival, stay and departure from ports. We look into why a new standard was necessary.

We also take a closer look at the implication of India’s move to manage part of the strategic Chabahar port, speak to Maritime UK about the challenges ahead for the UK’s ports following Brexit, and find out what is being done to regulate and mitigate emissions at ports around the UK.

Finally, we investigate the expected route for Kanal Istanbul, a planned artificial shipping channel between the Black Sea and the Sea of Marmara, in light of concerns from environmentalists, and consider the problem of maritime corruption.
