Arctic nations establish joint coast guard service

The Arctic Coast Guard Forum will perform maritime rescues and ocean environment emergency services. Going forward, a series of countries will be committed to sharing information and intelligence. Private-owned carriers are already being considered at this stage.

Maritime safety in the Arctic regions will take a big step forward when the nations in the Arctic Council start having their coast guard services collaborate and coordinate in the sensitive Arctic region, according to a statement from the Danish Shipowners' Association.
