Over the recent years the European Union has deployed a significant regulatory effort in the field of maritime transport. Today (as of beginning 2006), there is a comprehensive package of common rules regarding key aspects of shipping.

This article reviews the inception and main developments of the EU maritime policy over the years, examining the primary underlying factors.
