Marine (Scotland) Act 2010

Powers of marine enforcement officers

Section 131 - Enforcement of marine licensing regime

192.Section 131 sets out the powers that marine enforcement officers have for the purpose of enforcing the marine licensing regime. These are the common enforcement powers conferred by the Bill and the power conferred by section 150 (which pertains to requiring information relating to certain substances and objects). Such powers may be exercised in the Scottish marine area and in any other part of Scotland. The powers may not be exercised in relation to any British warship.

Section 132 - Enforcement of marine protection and nature conservation legislation

193.Section 132 outlines the powers that marine enforcement officers have for the purpose of enforcing nature conservation legislation. For the purpose of this section, “nature conservation legislation” means the specific pieces of legislation listed in subsection (2). That subsection lists marine conservation orders, sections 95, 96, 107 112(5) and 117 of the Bill, certain sections of the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981, certain regulations in the Conservation (Natural Habitats, &c) Regulations 1994 and byelaws made under regulation 36 of those Regulations. Powers may be exercised in the Scottish marine area and in any other part of Scotland. The powers may not be exercised in relation to any British warship. Additionally, the powers may not be exercised in relation to a third country vessel, a non-UK warship or any other vessel that is being used by a country other than the UK for any non-commercial purpose. The exception to this is where in the case of a third country vessel (other than a warship or a vessel being used by a third country for any non-commercial purpose) the United Kingdom is entitled under international law to exercise those powers without the consent of the flag state. The term “vessel” in this context does not include aircraft.
