a Commission proposal, the Council of Ministers, sitting on the 24th
March, 2014 confirmed Belize, Cambodia and Guinea-Conakry as non-cooperating
countries with regard to controlling illegal fishing by vessels carrying
their flags and established a ban on imports into the EU of any fisheries
products from these countries or caught by vessels flagged by them.
EU vessels will not be allowed to fish in these countries' waters.
The measure will come into effect from the date of publication in
the Official Journal. These are the first countries to suffer trade
sanctions under the EUs IUU regulation 1005/2008 establishing a Community
system to prevent, deter and eliminate illegal, unreported and unregulated
fishing, although several others are subject to a "yellow card", including
Ghana, Korea and Curação. Any decision to remove a country from the
list shall take into consideration whether Belize, Cambodia or Guinea
has taken concrete measures capable of achieving a lasting improvement
of the situation. European Commissioner for Maritime Affairs and Fisheries
made a statement welcoming the "historic" decision.
