The European Commission put forward on 30 May 2018 a draft Regulation proposing improvements to modernise and simplofy the way in which fishing rules are monitored and complied with in the European Union.
The proposal aims to bridge the gaps with the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) and with other EU policies, to simplify the legislative framework and reduce unnecessary administrative burden, to improve availability, reliability and completeness of fisheries data and information, and to remove obstacles that hinder the development of a culture of compliance and the equitable treatment of operators within and across Member States.
The existing Control Regulation (Council Regulation (EC) No 1224/2009) entered into force in 2010 and has been seen as an important role in stepping up compliance by Member States with the commonly agreed rules of the Common Fisheries Policy. A Commission REFIT evaluation, a special report of the European Court of Auditors and a Resolution by the European Parliament all pointed out to deficiencies which needed to be addressed.
