Law 21,066 came into force on February 16 2018. It amended the Navigation Law in connection with the extraction of sunk or stranded vessels and harmful materials contained therein.
The main amendments introduced to the Navigation Law are as follows:
Law 21,066 strengthens marine environment preservation and navigation safety, and the new faculties granted to the Maritime Authority in respect of ships or craft whose condition poses a risk or danger represent a positive change.
(1) According to new Article 132bis of the Navigation Law, a vessel or naval artefact is adrift if, as a result of the inadequacy of its equipment, fitting or crewing, it cannot be anchored safely or sail from the anchorage area as soon as the Maritime Authority requires it to do so.
