The Brazilian National Agency for Waterway Transportation (ANTAQ) recently published Normative Resolution 5/2016, which approves the rule for providing authorisation to legal entities to perform transportation activities in coastal and deep-sea navigations or operate in offshore and port support navigation.
Grants will be issued only to companies:
The referred rule repealed most of Resolution 2,510/2012, with the exception of Articles 18 to 21.
Before its approval, the referred rule underwent a public hearing. However, contributions by interested parties resulted in no significant changes to the proposal.
The newly approved rule brings about substantial changes in relation to repealed Resolution 2,510, except in relation to its structure and form. The main changes brought by the new rule include:
