Results:


The current project will produce results for all transport modes in the Republic of Moldova. For example, in the Waterborne transport sector the Flag State and Port State Control functions will benefit from an EU harmonized legal framework and will have an updated organizational process. The newly created Naval Agency will have operational documents and procedures in place enabling it to become fully operational. The Railway sector will have in place a drafted secondary legislative acts; EU-MD AA requirements will be implemented and future railway state institutions will have a proposed operational framework. In the Road transport sector, relevant legal and operational framework will also be prepared leading to harmonization with relevant EU Directives in this domain. EU legislation enforcement capacity will be strengthened through training and technical assistance. The Civil Aviation sector will also benefit from an updated legal and operational framework leading to improved capacity to assess airworthiness of aircraft and aeronautical products, parts and appliances and the organizations and personnel involved in these tasks. Another major benefit of the project is that an Accident Investigation Bureau for all transport modes will have its own proposed legal and operational framework.
