EU Points System

In June 2013 Marine Scotland, together with the other UK fisheries administrations, introduced a points scheme for fishing licence holders in accordance with Council Regulation (EU) 1224/2009 (“the Control Regulation”).

This Control Regulation, which applies to serious infringements committed after 01 June 2013, will be applied to fishing licences when there has been a serious infringement of the rules of the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP).
