Denouncing the EU-Comoros fisheries agreement

06-03-2018

Following the listing of the Comoros as a non-cooperating country in fighting illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing, the Commission has initiated the termination of the EU-Comoros fisheries agreement. Parliament’s consent, requested for this first ever denunciation of a fisheries agreement on grounds of IUU fishing, will be subject to a plenary vote planned for the March plenary session.

Sustainable management of external fishing fleets: Initial Appraisal of a European Commission Impact Assessment

15-04-2016

This note seeks to provide an initial analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of the European Commission's Impact Assessment (IA) accompanying its proposal on the sustainable management of external fishing fleets, repealing Council Regulation (EC) 1006/2008. The proposal, adopted on 10 December 2015, was referred to the Parliament’s Committee on Fisheries. Overall, the impression is that the IA has made a genuine attempt to articulate what it perceives to be the problems necessitating action and ...

This note seeks to provide an initial analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of the European Commission's Impact Assessment (IA) accompanying its proposal on the sustainable management of external fishing fleets, repealing Council Regulation (EC) 1006/2008. The proposal, adopted on 10 December 2015, was referred to the Parliament’s Committee on Fisheries. Overall, the impression is that the IA has made a genuine attempt to articulate what it perceives to be the problems necessitating action and to define the objectives of the initiative. The outcome of the stakeholder consultation, albeit rather limited, is clearly presented and appears to have been integrated into the analysis with a transparent presentation of the stakeholders' views throughout. Nevertheless, the IA has a number of shortcomings. The problem definition lacks the hard evidence required to be entirely convincing. The assessment of impacts is largely qualitative and is focused on benefits with hardly any reference to potential costs. The report would have been more persuasive had it provided stronger arguments and clearer quantitative evidence to prove that the expected benefits outweigh the costs. Generally, the information could have been better structured throughout and a more solid analysis of the compared options would have strengthened the IA.

New rules for managing the EU external fishing fleet

14-04-2016

In December 2015 the European Commission proposed a revised system for issuing and managing fishing authorisations, intended to improve monitoring and transparency of the EU external fishing fleet. The proposal, replacing the current 'Fishing Authorisations Regulation' 1006/2008, would apply to all EU vessels fishing outside EU waters, and to third-country vessels fishing in EU waters. The current scope of the authorisation system would be extended to include practices which have been poorly monitored ...

In December 2015 the European Commission proposed a revised system for issuing and managing fishing authorisations, intended to improve monitoring and transparency of the EU external fishing fleet. The proposal, replacing the current 'Fishing Authorisations Regulation' 1006/2008, would apply to all EU vessels fishing outside EU waters, and to third-country vessels fishing in EU waters. The current scope of the authorisation system would be extended to include practices which have been poorly monitored so far, such as private agreements between EU companies and third countries and abusive reflagging operations. Member States would authorise fishing vessels using common eligibility criteria, complemented by specific conditions depending on the nature of the authorisation. Part of the electronic fishing authorisations register, showing who fishes what and where, would for the first time be publicly accessible. On 15 February 2016, Member States in the Council generally supported the proposal, but also expressed some concerns, in particular in connection with the additional administrative burden that the proposal might entail. Parliament's Fisheries Committee is due to start discussing its draft report in April 2016. A more recent edition of this document is available.

Maritime safety remains high on the political agenda for the European Union, being the driving force behind the adoption of the three Maritime Safety Packages and including it as one of the main themes of the Parliament's recommendations for the EU’s maritime transport policy until 2018.This study provides an analysis of the effectiveness of the measures included in the Third Maritime Safety Package. It illustrates (through simplified intervention logic tables), the extent to which the anticipated effects have materialised and the challenges encountered during the first years of implementation.The report concludes that the majority of the anticipated short- and mid-term effects have materialised, while the assessment of the longer term effects led to a more cautious conclusion.

A Possible International Agreement on Marine Biodiversity in Areas beyond National Jurisdiction

04-11-2014

As a result of the structure of international law some 64 % of the world’s oceans lies beyond the national jurisdiction of coastal States. Over recent years growing concerns within the international community over the adequacy of the existing legal framework for the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity in areas beyond national jurisdiction have led to discussions under the auspices of the United Nations General Assembly on the possible development of a new international legal instrument ...

Impact Assessment of a Substantive Amendment to the Proposal for a Regulation on Ship Recycling

08-02-2013

Qualitative and quantitative assessment shows that an amendment to create a levy on ships calling at EU ports and a fund to support safe and environmentally sound ship recycling would provide incentives for ships to retain EU flags; however, setup of this system would be complex, raising serious concerns that it may not be in place quickly to achieve objectives.
