We would like to hear your views on the draft administrative rules that, when finalised, will set out how fishing quotas can be used during 2016.
The first phase of the demersal landing obligation comes into force on the 1 January 2016. It is important that the Quota Management Rules (QMRs) support adaptation to the landing obligation.
There are a number of proposed changes to the UK rules, including simplification of the quota banking and borrowing rules. The documents below include a consultation letter which outlines the proposed changes and the draft UK and English QMRs. There are two versions of the UK and English Rules, one clean version and one with all changes recorded for ease of reference.
