At a conference "Ending Illegal Fishing Event" organised from Environmental Justice Foundation in Brussels on 5 November 2013, Mrs.Maria Damanaki European Commissioner for Maritime Affairs and Fisheries Illegal Fishing gave a major policy speech on the EU's measures against IUU fishing. She outlined progress in compliance in eight countries named by the Commission as flagging vessels engaged in IUU fishing. She reported that Fiji, Togo, Sri Lanka, Panama and Vanuatu have all engaged in a dialogue with the Commission and have made credible progress in following an agreed action plan to improve controls over their vessels. For these countries the Commission has given more time, and will evaluate their progress again in March 2014. Belize, Cambodia and Guinea have not addressed the Commission's concerns linked to legislation, effective monitoring and surveillance systems, nor have they introduced satisfactory sanctioning regimes. The Commission subsequently formally identified them as non- cooperating third countries, which can lead to an import ban on their fisheries products. The Commission also published a decision formally warning Ghana, Korea and Curação that they are also being considered as non-cooperating third countries
