The Maritime Watch is an independent agency providing exclusive news, market intelligence and commentary on European Union regulatory affairs.

Maritime Watch subscribers receive up-to-the-minute, in depth coverage of regulatory threats and opportunities emanating from the EU institutions in Brussels, Luxembourg and Strasbourg.

It is the only service that can boast full-time, dedicated professional coverage of maritime EU affairs. The service focuses on market-sensitive information and is aimed at companies trading with and within Europe.

The website is updated constantly throughout the legislative cycle. Information is sorted according to three categories: intelligence reports, news and rumours. News and rumours are typically uploaded or updated several times a week, depending on legislative activity. These articles feed into the intelligence reports, which brief subscribers on past and present developments in specific policy areas.

Whenever we add or update an article we send out an alert by email. Alerts are free for all; sign up at the top of the home page.

Annual subscribers have access to all areas, including archives. Group subscriptions are available for those working for the same organisation or company, wherever they are based. See the subscription page for more details.

Non-subscribers have access to free headlines and free ‘taster’ articles we post on an occasional basis. It is not our policy to offer free trial subscriptions, though non-subscribers can purchase individual intelligence reports by sending an inquiry via the contact form.
