Morocco - increase in harbour dues and cancellation of ISPS charge

INTERTANKO has been informed that an increase of 5% on harbour dues (anchorage dues, entry dues and berth dues) has been retroactively applied as from 1 April 2005 in all Moroccan ports. 

Furthermore, with the same retroactive effect, the "ISPS charge" has been cancelled. 

INTERTANKO has contacted the Moroccan authorities concerning the retroactive application of the harbour dues and will seek to determine whether the announced 5% increase merely compensates for the cancelled "ISPS" charge. 

INTERTANKO neverthless welcomes the action taken to fund expenses related to the ISPS Code through a "traditional" port cost item rather than through a separate charge.
