After 2006, with the publication of a Green Paper on Maritime Policy, the European Commission laid the groundwork for a global maritime policy on the basis of sustainable development. The guiding principle behind these initial reflections was the need to establish universally applicable guide regulations which must accompany those specific to each activity or field of interest and be compatible with them in order to ensure governance and favour sustainability. A more detailed review of activities and the problems they entail enable us not only to understand the immense economic scope of the proposed objective but the magnitude of the problems faced as well. With this scenario as a reference, in this article we focus on analysing the institutional aspects regarding some significant activities with the aim of assessing the scope and feasibility of the EU proposal.
