A.II Provide up-to-date information on the planning and execution of air travel to combat pollution in the Bonn Agreement area; As a strong commitment to such a vision, the Ministerial Declaration must demonstrate the renewed efforts of the parties to the Agreement to achieve the agreed objectives and achieve better prevention, preparedness and response to marine pollution in the Great North Sea and its approaches. To this end, the parties intend to adopt the Bonn Agreement Strategic Action Plan (BASAP) 2019-2025, which will be attached to the Ministerial Declaration and contains ambitious strategic objectives, operational objectives and measures for their implementation for the period 2019-2025. Organize Joint Operational Combat Exercises (GOODX DELTA) for regional strategic training needs. International and European commitments are in place to ensure that the States of the Great North Sea are prepared to respond to pollution events, including global protocols and regional areas with shared responsibility. Cooperation with other regional and international organizations is necessary to identify synergies and avoid duplication. In order to ensure effective availability, it is necessary to have knowledge, planning, training and tests of the operation of emergency systems. When planning pollution control measures, the best available environmental studies should be taken into account. C.2 Keeping updates and maintaining common response plans for maritime incidents (DENGERNETH plan, MANCHEPLAN, four-party zone plan, NorBrit Plan [Plan De Bay of Biscay]); The Bonn Agreement`s Strategic Action Plan contains practical measures to implement the Bonn Agreement strategy. BASAP is regularly updated to meet the new challenges expected for the marine environment. More information is available on the new Bonn Agreement website B.III to ensure that the parties` response measures are properly formulated to protect the marine environment and that priorities are set on the most appropriate basis; Maintaining the coverage and effectiveness of aerial surveillance and analysis of strategic surveillance needs, including an assessment of existing data sets on the detection of oil and other pollution. BASAP 2019-2025 is expected to facilitate the implementation of the Bonn agreement.

It defines the vision, strategic objectives and operational objectives, as well as specific measurable measures and realistic targets for the period 2019-2025, in order to guide and focus the activities of the parties. BASAP recognizes the need to maintain proven systems and to continue the operational nature of the agreement. At the same time, ways are being formulated to intensify these efforts and develop new directions. A.5 Strengthen cooperation in the detection of offences related to MARPOL`s Schedule VI and enforcement, including under the current port state control system, as well as the implementation of advanced tools for compliance and sharing the results of enforcement measures in common information systems (e.g. B, Thetis-EU); whether the source of decisions/measures can be maintained. BASAP 2019-2025 should facilitate the implementation of the Bonn Agreement to help prevent marine pollution as a whole and to address future challenges, such as the inevitable paradigm shift in the energy and raw materials markets, the environmental challenges identified by the 2015 Paris Agreement and the pressure on marine space planning, which can lead to other risks at sea.
