A law created the CET in 2006. It operates entirely independently, and its purpose is to promote, analyse and monitor equal treatment between all people, without discrimination on the basis of race or ethnic origin, gender, sexual orientation, religion or beliefs, disability or age. It lends assistance to people who feel they have been the victims of discrimination by providing them with an advice and guidance service.

Located within the municipalities of Mertert and Grevenmacher, on the left bank of the Moselle, the Port of Mertert covers a total area of 65 hectares. The Port of Mertert allows the Luxembourg economy to benefit from competitive transhipment costs and outstanding service. It defends the interests of river transport, the benefits of which need hardly be listed: environmentally friendly, reliable, safe. It has therefore planned to enlarge the arrival and departure route by a further 4 tracks, in order to increase the number of available tracks to 8.
The “Commissariat aux affaires maritimes” was established in November 1990 with the aim of creating a public maritime register for Luxembourg. This body acts as a service provider while also being the supervising authority for the shipping industry and particularly for the approved shipping companies operating from Luxembourg. In 2000, the “Commissariat aux affaires maritimes” adopted a quality management system allowing it to become the first public body in Luxembourg to be ISO 9001 certified. Since 1990, the shipping industry is an important part of the government’s economic diversification policy. As of the end of 2015, the Luxembourg Maritime Register had some 224 vessels, with a total gross tonnage of almost 3 million tonnes.
