The Sea Fishing (Licences and Notices) (EU Exit) (Scotland) (Amendment) Regulations 2019

Status:

This is the original version (as it was originally made).

EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations make amendments to the Sea Fishing (Licences and Notices) (Scotland) Regulations 2011 (“the 2011 Regulations”). The 2011 Regulations make provision for the manner in which licences under sections 4 and 4A of the Sea Fish (Conservation) Act 1967 may be granted and the manner in which a notice of variation, revocation or suspension of any such licence may be effected.

These Regulations are made in consequence of the Sea Fish Licensing (Foreign Vessels) (EU Exit) (Scotland) Order 2019, which makes provision prohibiting fishing by foreign fishing boats in the Scottish zone unless authorised by a licence granted by the Scottish Ministers.

These Regulations extend the application of sea fishing licences granted by the Scottish Ministers to foreign fishing boats for fishing and receiving trans-shipped fish in the Scottish zone. Regulation 2(2)(b) amends the application of the 2011 Regulations to include foreign fishing boats. Regulation 2(3) substitutes and amends various definitions, being “licence”, “nominee”, “Scottish fishing boat” and “sea fishing licence”, as a result of changes made by Regulation 2(2). Regulation 2(4) makes other consequential amendments as a result of changes made by Regulation 2(2).

An impact assessment has not been produced for this instrument as no significant impact on the private or voluntary sector is foreseen.
