INTRODUCTION AND OVERVIEW: Transformation of port structures often requires new legislation. This Module identifies fundamental points to consider when developing such legislation, with examples from existing port reform regimes. The examples provided should be used for reference purposes only. Because every country has a unique legal and institutional context, it is impossible in practice to present a model law that fits the wide variety of fundamentally different legal systems. With such a diversity of legal and policy regimes worldwide, the exact purpose of a port law may vary from country to country. Sometimes, an existing law is changed to accommodate new institutional structures, made necessary because of changed socio-economic conditions. Other times, a law lays the groundwork for the public sector to participate in port development and infrastructure investments, or enables the private sector to carry out port activities that previously resided in a public sector monopoly. The reference provisions presented in this Module are not meant to cover completely each and every issue. They are meant to be used as tools for port reform, to shape the legal foundation for marketable and bankable regulatory and contractual arrangements.
