The European Maritime Safety Agency (EMSA) is a European Union agency charged with reducing the risk of maritime accidents, marine pollution from ships and the loss of human lives at sea by helping to enforce the pertinent EU legislation.
EMSA’s mission is to serve EU maritime interests for a safe, secure, green and competitive maritime sector and act as a reliable and respected point of reference in the maritime sector in Europe and worldwide.
EMSA capitalises on its unique know-how to position itself as an essential player in the maritime cluster in Europe and beyond.
EMSA works on maritime safety, security, climate, environment and single market issues and tasks, first as a service provider to Member States and the Commission, but also as an innovative and reliable partner and knowledge hub for the European maritime cluster and potentially beyond as a reference internationally.
EMSA’s vision is to be the centre of excellence for a safe and sustainable EU maritime sector.
Quality, credibility, efficiency, effectiveness, transparency, flexibility, and being smart and gender balanced.
