Electronic recording and reporting system (ERS)

The EU system for fisheries controls

The Electronic recording and reporting system (ERS) is used to record, report, process, store and send fisheries data (catch, landing, sales and transhipment).

The key element is the electronic logbook where the master of a fishing vessel keeps a record of fishing operations. The record is then sent to the national authorities, which store the information in a secure data base.

Technical files for ERS system developers of EU countries are moved to the Master Data Register.

The ERS version 3.0 guidelines are published on the CIRCABC extranet. Please note that the CIRCABC is a password protected communication platform accessible to the European Commission and Member States Fisheries administrations.

The ERS system may involve processing of personal data. For more information on this processing and the rights of data subjects see the specific privacy statement enclosed at the bottom of this page.
