Summary/Abstract: The evolution of navigation has led to the establishment of international maritime laws through conventions concluded between states and their ratification at national level by the signatory states. The aspects of this research relate to the maritime approach, starting from the historical perspective, its definition in the legal doctrine, the application of the legislation in case of collision or approaching ships. Establishing the causes of the approach, which party is at fault or at non-compliance with the navigation rules, leads to the commission of criminal, contravention or administrative deeds. Competence in research into the occurrence of maritime approach events belongs to the authorities. These are specified in national legislation and international provisions with the task of ascertaining the facts, gathering evidence, taking the necessary measures. The solutions given by the courts are enforced on ships, goods, and crew and ship owners. We have identified the need for legal and normative regulations by unifying maritime rules into a Romanian Maritime Code.
