A new era will dawn for the Belgian Maritime Law: On the 1st of September 2020 the New Belgian Maritime Code will (probably) enter into force.

August 1, 2019


Today, the 1st of August 2019, the new Belgian Maritime Code, as accepted by the Commission and the Parliament on the 4th of April 2019, is published within the Belgian State Gazette and will enter into force on the first day of the month following the expiry of a period of one year after its publication.


On the other hand, it is though possible that the date of entering into force will be postponed if the law still becomes subject to change.


One thing is certain at the moment, namely that there are interesting times ahead in the Belgian maritime law.


You can download the entire enactment as approved (dutch-French) here.
