13. 2021-08-24 Drafts Considering that the current COVID-19 pandemic is still severe, the violation of international commercial port epidemic prevention measures may affect the safety of the port area. Therefore, the Maritime and Port Bureau has processed the amendment of "The Plan for Ship Quarantine Measures (Amendment 2.0)" to rule the shipping companies, who have the responsibility to manage and control the ship’s personnel during the berthing operation in the port area. Furthermore, persons on risky ships are prohibited to leave the ships, in accordance with the government's pandemic regulations. However, there is still a need to disembark before and after berthing and unberthing operations or emergencies. Except for the above situation, if persons disembark from the risky ship arbitrarily, it may be considered an act of obstructing port area safety. According to Subparagraph 3 of Paragraph 1 of Article 36 of "The Commercial Port Law" , the amendment on Paragraph 6 of "Behaviors Which May Prejudice the Port Safety Designated in Subparagraph 3 of Paragraph 1 of Article 36 of the Commercial Port Law" stipulates that failure to comply with port area's epidemic prevention operation regulations to manage and control the ship’s personnel and the crew disembarking from the risky ships arbitrarily during the epidemic prevention period are considered an act of obstructing port area safety. In addition, abandoned or laid-up ships because of a maritime casualty or seafarer -management dispute have increasingly become a problem in the commercial port area. To address this problem, the Maritime and Port Bureau amends Paragraph 7 of "Behaviors Which May Prejudice the Port Safety Designated in Subparagraph 3 of Paragraph 1 of Article 36 of the Commercial Port Law" as follows: if a ship owner does not maintain the effectiveness of P&I insurance which covers the expense in activities related to the removal of shipwreck, the damage associated with oil pollution and the costs of the seafarer’s repatriation, it may also be considered an act of obstructing port area safety.
