Revising the fisheries control system

07-11-2019

On 30 May 2018, the European Commission issued a proposal to revise the fisheries control system by modernising and simplifying the monitoring of fisheries activities, improving the enforcement and updating a control system that was conceived before the 2013 CFP reform. The revision centres on the amendment of the Control Regulation 1224/2009. The proposal introduces requirements for more complete fisheries data, including an electronic tracking system for all fishing vessels, fully digitised reporting ...

On 30 May 2018, the European Commission issued a proposal to revise the fisheries control system by modernising and simplifying the monitoring of fisheries activities, improving the enforcement and updating a control system that was conceived before the 2013 CFP reform. The revision centres on the amendment of the Control Regulation 1224/2009. The proposal introduces requirements for more complete fisheries data, including an electronic tracking system for all fishing vessels, fully digitised reporting of catches with electronic logbooks and landing declarations applicable to all vessels, and catch-declaration rules for recreational fisheries. It improves traceability through digitalised identification and declaration along the supply chain for all fishery and aquaculture products, whether from EU fisheries or imported. The enforcement rules are thoroughly revised, with a common list of activities defined as serious infringements and corresponding sanctions, as well as a strengthened point system. The proposal also revises the mandate of the European Fisheries Control Agency (EFCA), to fully align its objectives with the CFP and to upgrade its inspection powers, and Regulation 1005/2008 on illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing, to introduce a digital catch certification scheme for imported fishery products.

Illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing

24-11-2017

Illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing is widely recognised as a significant environmental, economic and social problem. It represents a major threat to marine ecosystems, an unfair disadvantage for responsible fishermen, and a disruption for the seafood market. Combatting IUU fishing has become a key means for achieving sustainable management of global fisheries. While the root cause of IUU fishing is states' failure to discipline vessels operating under their flag, tackling this phenomenon ...

Illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing is widely recognised as a significant environmental, economic and social problem. It represents a major threat to marine ecosystems, an unfair disadvantage for responsible fishermen, and a disruption for the seafood market. Combatting IUU fishing has become a key means for achieving sustainable management of global fisheries. While the root cause of IUU fishing is states' failure to discipline vessels operating under their flag, tackling this phenomenon requires a many-sided approach and involves a whole range of international instruments. These instruments define a system of mutually reinforcing measures, tailored for each of the different responsibilities that countries have over their fishing vessels (as flag states), their waters (as coastal states), access to their ports (as port states), and access to their market (as market states). In response to this global problem, the EU has set up a thorough control system, in particular the IUU Regulation 1005/2008, which remains to date a unique piece of fisheries legislation worldwide. Intended to prevent the import of IUU-caught products into the EU, the IUU Regulation is structured around key market-related measures, such as a catch certification scheme, which is the first unilateral scheme of this type, and a procedure for non-cooperating third countries that may lead to trade sanctions. A broad range of complementary measures reinforces this approach.

How to make fisheries control in Europe uniform

27-09-2016

Responsibility for controlling and enforcing the rules under the common fisheries policy (CFP) lies primarily with the Member States. With a proposal for a revision of the EU regulatory framework on fisheries control possible in 2017, the EP is set to give its views on the importance of uniform implementation of control measures across the Union.

The European Fisheries Control Agency

26-05-2016

Based in Vigo (Spain), the European Fisheries Control Agency was established in 2005 to support enforcement of the rules applicable under the EU Common Fisheries Policy. The Agency fosters cooperation between national authorities and coordinates the operational side of specific joint deployments of national inspections and controls of fishing and fishing-related activities, both at sea and on land. It also contributes to training, the provision of inspection handbooks and the promotion of best practice ...

The Agency fosters cooperation between national authorities and coordinates the operational side of specific joint deployments of national inspections and controls of fishing and fishing-related activities, both at sea and on land. It also contributes to training, the provision of inspection handbooks and the promotion of best practice. It collaborates with other EU bodies and agencies in the field of maritime affairs, notably on the development of the EU's integrated maritime surveillance capacities. In the future, it may become part of a new European Border and Coast Guard capacity, an initiative recently proposed by the European Commission.

The Common Fisheries Policy - Infringement Procedures and Imposed Sanctions throughout the European Union

15-01-2014

This briefing note presents an overview of Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) infringement procedures and imposed sanctions throughout the European Union. It identifies potential risks in the ways different Member States follow-up on infringements, thus undermining compliance of CFP rules. The study recommends that Member States enhance cooperation on inspecting fisheries and sanctioning infringements, ensure an effective system for following-up and impose deterrent sanctions to avoid recidivism.
