The countries around the Baltic Sea and the North Sea will receive a letter these days from the Danish Minister for the Environment, Kirsten Brosbøl (Social Democrat, S). The letter arrives just 23 days before the respective countries will help monitor compliance with the coming sulfur regulations by controlling ships' emissions, and the letter represents a strong call from the Danish minister to her colleagues asking them to ensure that enforcement measures are ready.

And solid monitoring measures, at that. Kirsten Brosbøl emphasizes the Danish efforts to strengthen port controls in line with the proposal by the EU Commission, which still needs to be approved by the committee responsible for the sulfur directive, set to come into force on January 1st 2015. She also points to air monitoring, for which a bidding round will be opened soon.
