|Measure 1.9 Preventing illegal loading of goods in water transport outside of ports or piers|
|On the Danube, Sava and Tisa there are 11 ports and 2 cargo ports in the Republic of Serbia allowing illegal loading of goods. According to the data of the national inspection for navigation safety, there have been 150 registered places where illegal loading of goods was performed, primarily gravel and sand, oil and petroleum products, and agricultural products.
The existence of illegal places/facilities enabling illegal loading of goods in water transport has a negative impact on the budget revenues, bearing in mind that the provision of such services is not subject to port fees or other tax liabilities, due to the absence of state authorities being normally present in ports (port authorities, police, customs, sanitary and phytosanitary inspection etc.). Further on, these facilities cause major market retorsion, which leads to legal port operators losing their positions in the international market. Illegal loading of oil and petroleum products is performed with the aim to avoid taxes and excise for this type of goods.
