Spanish term or phrase: Puerto Comunitario
In an essay discussing maritime related problems/regulations the adjective "Communitario" is used to refer to ports, regulations, etc, from the European Community. Can we say Community port in English? What do we say?

Thanks in advance!

Adopted Legislation

Council Recommendation on seasonal flu vaccination
Council Recommendation 2009/1019/EU of 22 December 2009 on seasonal influenza vaccination

In the context of seasonal influenza vaccination, the objective to reach 75% vaccination coverage of the older age groups, recommended by the World Health Organisation (WHO), will clearly be facilitated by concerted action at the level of the EU. Member States are therefore encouraged to adopt and implement national, regional or local action plans or policies, as appropriate, aimed at improving seasonal influenza vaccination coverage, with the aim of reaching, as early as possible and preferably by the 2014-15 winter season, a vaccination coverage rate of 75% for "older age groups" and, if possible, for other risk groups. The European Commission is invited to report regularly to the Council on the implementation of this Recommendation, on the basis of the data the Member States will make available.

Commission Recommendation on the use of low sulphur fuel by ships at berth in EU ports
Commission Recommendation 2009/1020/EU of 21 December 2009 on the safe implementation of the use of low sulphur fuel by ships at berth in Community ports

Art. 4b of Council Directive 1999/32/EC relating to a reduction in the sulphur content of certain liquid fuels provides for the maximum sulphur content of marine fuels used by ships at berth in Community ports, including, as of 1 January 2010, the obligations for Member States to ensure that vessels do not use marine fuels with a sulphur content exceeding 0.1 % by mass and that marine gas oils are not placed on the market in their territory if the sulphur content of those marine gas oils exceeds 0.1 % by mass. Art. 6 of the Directive also provides that Member States must check by sampling that the sulphur content of marine fuels complies with the relevant provision of Art. 4b and that sampling commences from the date of entry into force of the requirement. As part of the enforcement actions against ships which fail to comply with these requirement while at berth, Member States should request them to provide detailed evidence of the steps they are taking to achieve compliance. This should include a contract with a manufacturer and an approved retrofit plan which should be approved by the ship’s classification society or, for ships flying the flag of a Member State, by the organisation having recognition in accordance with Regulation (EC) No 391/2009 of the European Parliament and of the Council. The retrofit plan should clearly state the date of completion of the adaptation and certification process.
