Harmonising inspection procedures

EU fisheries inspectors have been designated to check compliance with common fisheries policy rules, particularly in the framework of the EU’s international control obligations and specific control and inspection programmes adopted by the Commission for certain fisheries.  The recent adoption of the new ‘control’ regulation harmonises inspection procedures and methods, and ensures the admissibility of inspection reports drawn up by one Member State in another Member State.
As part of the 2002 reform, the European Union decided to set up the so called ‘Community’ inspectors, these known as 'EU inspectors' following adoption of the Treaty of Lisbon. The idea was to have experts of all nationalities available to carry out shared fisheries surveillance missions and inspect vessels operating in the zone concerned, regardless of the flag they fly. The new ‘control’ regulation helps strengthen the system aiming at developing a stronger culture of compliance among operators.
