The article analyzes from a public perspective (fight against pollution, environmental protection and safety at sea) the interrelated consequences of the global governance through European Union (BU) and international practice, altogether with the BU democratic representation in the decision- making process at international institutions to foster its interests. An assessment of the EU's capacity to effectively become a member to the International Maritime Organization (IMO) dueto its weight as a leading global actor is provided. Finally, the future status of the United Kingdom (UK) after leaving the BU on 29 March 2019 raises further questions related to the applicable maritime and environmental safety standards to the UK and the remaining 27 BU Member States.
