The objective of Policy Area (PA) Safe is for the Baltic Sea region to become a leading region for maritime safety and security.

It is in the interest of all countries bordering the Baltic Sea to reduce the risk of maritime accidents and marine pollution, including hazardous spills. PA Safe actions focus on many aspects which can improve maritime safety and security including resurveying of shipping routes, improving safety of navigation by means of e-navigation and new technology, emergency preparedness and winter navigation.

PA Safe is coordinated by Sweden and Finland.
