On 23 October the Agency at a meeting of the Board of the Union of fishing collective farms of Russia discussed an excessive requirement for transport security and Maritime safety in relation to fishing vessels of such enterprises.

About excessive demands in terms of transport security and unsustainable burden on regional businesses said the Chairman of the Board of the Kaliningrad regional Union of fishing collective farms Oleg Tverdokhleb.

"We have fulfilled all the conditions of transport security, has spent 15 million rubles. However, the results of subsequent verification of the FSB showed a negative result. The proposed measures do not become a barrier to potential terrorists who can enter the company. In fact, Fisher's event No. 16-FZ does not solve the problem of transport security and do not reach the goal. These cost the economy nothing, and our companies will be the damage caused. Therefore, the Kaliningrad regional Duma came out with a legislative initiative to correct this situation. A bill introduced in the State Duma and is in terms of consideration of bills in Committee on transport.

There is a consistent opinion that we have in the country monetary and financial policy is very well established, but to economic policy there are big issues. In the Kaliningrad region a year ago, formed on average new businesses 6 thousand, liquidated 4 thousand. Now this trend seems exactly the opposite. Businesses do not sustain the financial press. Sooner or later they will be even less in the economy, nobody will invest, and the budget will be nothing to do," opined the Kaliningrad fishermen Oleg Tverdokhleb.

Participated in the Board meeting the Deputy head of the Federal Agency for fisheries Peter Savchuk said that in matters of transport security and Maritime safety Russia will follow international standards and IMO requirements.

"Yes, in some cases absurd, when we have some businesses where we have no passenger terminals and certain conditions that require such measures. But in any case, the minimum requirements should be and we should act accordingly. Possible, considering the decrease on the categorization of fishing vessels", - said the Deputy head of Rosrybolovstvo.

Regarding Maritime safety, Peter Savchuk also noted the need to pay more attention to the safety of people's lives, Recalling that any craft working people, and even in the boat they have to work in life jackets, the life jackets need to purchase and minimum requirements on safety of navigation to perform.

"Very few think about the lives of people turn around here, this is the important part. The ship, the crew is prepared from the Bank", - concluded Peter Savchuk.
