Council Regulation 1224/2009 establishes a new control system for ensuring compliance with the rules of the common fisheries policy (CFP). The regulation was the subject of extensive discussion before its adoption, and by strengthening the controls in the previous system it is designed to provide a sound and effective control framework for the foreseeable future.

The Government are also seeking improvements to the way European fisheries are managed under a reformed CFP.
