A new and extended version of the HELCOM Baltic Sea Clean Shipping Guide has been released in both electronic and print form. The publication, aimed at all mariners at sea, gives a concise and easily understandable overview of the regional environmental and safety of navigation measures applied in the Baltic Sea to maritime traffic.
The focus of the Baltic Sea Clean Shipping Guide is on commercial shipping which have to comply with the rules of the International Maritime Organization (IMO). However, some of the material are also relevant for smaller ships such as fishing boats, working vessels and pleasure craft. Even if specific coastal countries or ports may have deviating practices, the content should represent the regional best practice.
