Reform of the EU system for fisheries controls

Public consultation

In 2008, the European Commission launched a public consultation on its proposal to modernise and reform the control system of the Common Fisheries Policy. Interested parties were invited to express their views on the nine fields of action identified in the consultation paper, as well as to present their opinions as to what further measures would be appropriate to strengthen the control system of the Common Fisheries Policy.

The consultation closed on 5 May 2008.
