Producer organisations must use this form as soon as a vessel joins or leaves their organisation.
A producer organisation (PO) should complete application form PO1 to notify the Marine Management Organisation (MMO) of vessels joining or leaving their PO as soon as the change takes place.
If MMO is not informed promptly, this may lead to quota allocation and monitoring errors.
A vessel will not be allowed to fish in the non-sector unless its licence carries at least the fixed quota allocation (FQA) units, or equivalent, associated with that licence at 1 January 2008. Also, MMO reserves the right to request the acquisition of FQAs to cover your annual catch of quota stock.
Before rejoining the 10-metre-and-under fleet, a vessel must remove any FQA units associated with its licence.
