In an action taken by the Council of the EU against the Commission, the European Court (Grand Chamber) decided that the Commission was within its rights to make a submission on IUU fishing to the International Tribunal for the Law of The Sea, in its consideration of a request for an advisory opinion on IUU fishing submitted by the Sub-Regional Fisheries Commission (SRFC). The Council claimed that the Commission was not authorised by it to make such a submission. The action was dismissed and the Council was ordered to pay costs, along with the Member States who led the action (Czech Republic, Greece, Spain, France, Lithuania, Netherlands, Portugal, Finland and the UK).
