The project will provide new, practical and user-centered risk management tools to support the competent authorities in preventing maritime accidents, minimizing their human and environmental consequences and improving the quality of overall maritime risk management, the latter also for other modes of transport. Accordingly, the project will consist of three components: The first component, on accident prevention, will be addressed by a Baltic adaptation of the AISyRISK tool, in operational online use by authorities in Norway. In addition, a new module for ice navigation risk will be developed. The end users of this tool are maritime authorities. The second component, on minimizing consequences, will be addressed by implementing a regional online service on vulnerability of the Baltic Sea marine ecosystem to maritime spills. In addition, the project will ensure compatibility between the project solutions and other existing systems and frameworks as well as prepare for integrated regional systems. The end users of this tool are national maritime authorities. The third component, an overall risk management performance, will develop a novel tool that includes two interlinked functions: to evaluate the current risk management performance of the administration and the quality of risk assessments. The end users of this tool are maritime authorities, as well as other transport authorities and relevant stakeholders.
