Details

The Marine Management Organisation (MMO) is working with inshore fisheries and conservation authorities (IFCAs) to develop and use an inshore vessel monitoring system (IVMS) to maximise their potential as a management tool for marine protected areas and inshore fisheries.

The project has produced a specification for I-VMS devices for vessels less than 12 metres. The specification details mandatory requirements for a device in order for it to be effective as a compliance and monitoring tool. The EU vessel monitoring system (VMS) dual-device system (VMS+) can be adapted to meet any future IVMS or national reporting requirements for vessels over 12 metres.
