EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Order)

This Order revokes 8 Orders in their entirety and 2 Orders partially. All of the listed Orders or provisions relate to sea fisheries and are now spent. For example, the Sea Fishing (Restriction on Days at Sea) (Scotland) Order 2010 (“the 2010 Order”) provides for the enforcement of effort restrictions in relation to fishing in the cod recovery zone. As those effort restrictions have been revoked by Regulation (EU) 2016/2094 of the European Parliament and of the Council amending Council Regulation (EC) No 1342/2008 establishing a long-term plan for cod stocks and the fisheries exploiting those stocks (OJ L 330, 3.12.2016, p.1), the 2010 Order is no longer required and can now be revoked.

No Business and Regulatory Impact Assessment has been prepared in relation to this Order, as no impact upon business, charities or the voluntary bodies is foreseen.
