On 1 June 2023, the European Commission published a proposal seeking to update the Directive on the investigation of accidents in the maritime transport sector, in order to take into account changes in the international maritime regulatory environment and technological developments in the maritime sector in recent years. The proposal also seeks to achieve an improved concentration of resources and to address shortages in expertise.
Within the European Parliament, the Committee on Transport and Tourism (TRAN) is handling the file, with Caroline Nagtegaal (Renew, NL) as rapporteur. The rapporteur published her draft report on 18 September 2023.
