Marine Act (Northern Ireland) 2013

Section 27: Byelaws: procedure

This section requires the Department to carry out public consultation before making any byelaws.  It must publicise its intention to make byelaws and provide a copy of the draft byelaws, if asked, for which it may charge a fee.

The provision of byelaws will be at a level appropriate to meet the objectives of an MCZ, but will not exceed that which is required.

Byelaws must be confirmed by the Secretary of State before they come into operation.  Once confirmed, the Department must publish notice of the making of the byelaws.
