The European Commission issued a notice to EU fishery sector stakeholders concerning the withdrawal from the EU of the United Kingdom, and EU rules on fisheries and aquaculture. It notes that according to the international law of the sea, fishing vessels wishing to engage in fishing activities in waters under the sovereignty or jurisdiction of a third country (i.e. UK) are required to obtain a fishing authorisation from that third country. However, they will also require authorisation of their flag member state, to which the Commission may object if legal conditions are not complied with. The notice also indicates that UK vessels may only engage in fishing activities in Union waters if in possession of an authorisation issued by the European Commission. The notice also indicates that EU imports of fishery products from the UK will need to be accompanied by validated catch certificates under Regulation (EC) No 1005/2008, certifying that the catches concerned have been made in accordance with applicable laws, regulations and international conservation and management measures. EU labelling and sanitary requirements will also need to be met.
