The participants of the 2nd Hydraulic Engineering Structures and Dredging Congress in Moscow – organized by PortNews Media Group – have suggested establishment of a working group for improvement of the Dredging and Health, Environment and Safety (HES) regulations.

When speaking at the Congress, Andrey Lavrishchev, General Director of FSUE Rosmorport, emphasized that the system of dredging and HES regulations has a number of problems hindering the construction and repair works in seaports and increasing the cost of those works.

Victor Chebotayev, Chief Engineer of FSUE Natsrybresurs, added that “it would be necessary to create a single window system for dredging operations as well as a system of state environmental monitoring of bottom sediments and dumping areas. Organizations subordinate to the Ministry of Nature could be charged with this task.”

During the last week’s event, Sergey Koskin, Deputy Director, Department of State Policy for Regulation of Water Resources, RF Ministry of Nature, reminded that the Ministry already has a working group on elimination of administrative barriers which welcomes such proposals.

Andrei Kozlov, Deputy Director, Department of State Policy for Maritime and River Transport of the Russian Ministry of Transport also emphasized the necessity to improve legislation on construction of hydraulic engineering structures.
