Regulation (EU) No 1379/2013 - signed by the co-legislators on 11 December 2013 - introducing a number of amendments to Regulation (EC) No 1184/2006 and Regulation (EC) No 1224/2009. It also repeals Regulation (EC) No 104/2000, in the context of the reform of the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP).
The market organisation of fisheries and aquaculture products is regulation by the Common Market Organisation (CMO) Regulation. This Act was first introduced in 1970 and comprised basic elements for an internal market for fisheries products including marketing standards, rules and support for producer organisations and market intervention mechanisms. The original CMO Regulation was amended a number of times and its latest version - Regulation (EC) No 104/2000 - was repealed by this Regulation.
This Regulation revises the aims and regulation of common organisation of the markets of fishery and aquaculture (fish and shellfish farming) products. As part of the wider CFP reform, this CMO Regulation removes most of the market intervention mechanisms and aimed to ensure that fishing and aquaculture activities contribute to long-term environmental, economic and social sustainability.
This initiative was first tabled by the European Commission on 13 July 2011. It was formally signed by the Council of the European Union and the European Parliament on 11 December 2013 and published in the Official Journal on 28 December 2013.
