Maritime Spatial Plan(s)
Status: MSP process ongoing
Italy has not yet adopted an MSP. A draft MSP and the associated SEA were shared for public consultation in Autumn 2022 and are in the process of being finalized by the Technical Committee based on the responses received.
The EU MSP Directive was transposed into national legislation through the Legislative Decree 17 October 2016, n. 201. The Inter-ministerial Coordination Table for Maritime Spatial Planning completed guidelines containing indicators and criteria for the preparation of maritime spatial managment plans, published in the Decreee of the Presidency of Council of Ministries, 1 December 2017, published in the Gazzetta Ufficiale on 24 January 2018, n.19.
