MOSCOW, February 2 (Itar-Tass) — President Dmitry Medvedev signed into law a Federal Bill entitled "On the Introduction of Amendments to the Administrative Offences Code of the Russian Federation", passed by the State Duma lower house of parliament on January 13 and approved by the Federation Council upper house of parliament on January 25, the Kremlin press service announced on Thursday.
The Federal law fills a gap in the Administrative Offences Code in a section concerning sea transport infractions. Article 11.7 entitled "Breach of Navigation Rules" has been supplemented with two new elements of offence, establishing administrative responsibility of the shipmaster for navigation without pilots in the areas of mandatory pilotage, as well as for a breach of the rules for the provision of information to pilots about the draught, length and other essential data on the ship.
Article 19.22 entitled "A Breach of Rules for the Registration of Transport Craft of All Types, Mechanisms and Installations" is set out in a new wording and is supplemented with a new part envisaging the establishment of administrative liability for a breach of rules for the registration of seagoing ships or mixed river-sea-going ships. Appropriate amendments have been also introduced to the procedural norms listed in Articles 23.1, 23.3, 23.31, 23.35, and 23.36.
