Cooperation Harbour Master Division Rotterdam and the Netherlands Coastguard confirmed once more
On Monday 8 November 2021, the updated cooperation agreement between the Coastguard and the Harbour Master Division of the Port of Rotterdam Authority was signed by Jan van Zanten, Director of the Coastguard and Rene de Vries (State) Harbour Master at the Port of Rotterdam.
The agreement includes arrangements on cooperation in, for example, the approach area and keeping the other party informed in the event of incidents that (may) affect operations. In the event of an incident, (a representative of) the Harbour Master can join the North Sea Regional Management Team (RBN) or Operational Team of the Coastguard Centre in Den Helder. In addition, various laws and plans have been amended in recent years, meaning that an updated agreement was necessary.
The signing of the agreement also reaffirmed the good cooperation between the two parties.
