Development of these proposals began with workshops held in 2013, 2014, and 2015. Since then they have developed to meet the European Commission's information requirements.
The proposals are split by advisory council area, and there are two documents for each: one details the actual proposal and the other shows the evolution of the measures.
We consulted other member states and the advisory councils on this version between September and November 2016.
The updated proposals were presented to the North Sea and North Western Waters Advisory Councils in February 2017. The presentations are available below.
A new version of the proposals was published in April 2017.
