18 workshops will be held during the European Maritime Days. Euroshore plans a workshop on the new proposal of the EU Commission for delivery of ship generated waste and cargo residues.

An expert from the EU Commission will highlight the main topics of the new proposal. Other stakeholders, such as representatives of the Bulgarian ports, the shipping lines and the waste sector, can exchange views on the new proposal.

The EU member states have already discussed this proposal, which will also be talked about in the European Parliament. Depending on potential outstanding issues between Council and Parliament to be addressed in further negotiations, the proposal could be agreed and be adopted in 2019.
