  1. Annex VI Revision of the Black Sea Land-Based Pollution Protocol Concept & Principal Elements Second Consultative Meeting for the Revision of the Black Sea LBS Protocol, GPA Work Programme for the Black Sea, EU Framework Directive and EU Marine Strategy Istanbul, 26-27 May 2004

  2. Grounds for the revision • the outdated approach of the existing Protocol; • problems encountered throughout the region in implementing the Protocol; • priorities accorded to certain pollutant categories do not coincide with actual problems of the Black Sea (e.g. nutrients); • the EU accession process made compliance with the EU Framework Water Directive a compulsory requirement for at least three out of the six coastal countries (Bulgaria, Romania and Turkey) • need to better incorporate and address the negative impacts caused by activities beyond the coastal countries 2

  3. First Consultative Meeting: Views Expressed • The revised LBS Protocol should include not only the objectives, but also measures, Best Environmental Practice and Best Available Techniques • The geographical area of the Protocol should be expanded • It is necessary to develop and implement National Programmes of Action (NPAs) for the implementation of the Protocol • The objectives and modalities in the revised Protocol, GPA WP and regional and national SAPs should be harmonised 3

  4. First Consultative Meeting: Views Expressed (cont.) • When revising the Protocol and preparing the GPA WP proper consideration should be given to the experience of the Mediterranean Sea • As regards WFD, it would be necessary to use its principles, not WFD itself • The WFD is fully consistent with the GPA approach and both processes are mutually supportive • It is important to involve other countries, not only Black Sea countries, in the process • Progressively, as capacity of countries increases, targets should get stricter 4

  5. Conceptual Framework • Scope (geographical and substantive areas of application) and definitions • Substantive provisions • Procedural and institutional provisions • Compliance and enforcement mechanisms • Annexes 5
