Consultatation on the Alien and Locally Absent Species in Aquaculture Regulations (NI) 2012
CONSULTATION ON THE IMPLEMENTATION IN NORTHERN IRELAND OF COUNCIL REGULATION (EC) NO 708/2007, AS AMENDED, CONCERNING USE OF ALIEN AND LOCALLY ABSENT SPECIES IN AQUACULTURE
Your comments are invited on proposals to implement Council Regulation (EC) No 708/2007 (“the Regulation”), as last amended by Regulation (EU) No 304/2011 of the European Parliament and of the Council, concerning use of alien and locally absent species in aquaculture and Commission Regulation (EC) No 535/2008 laying down detailed rules for the implementation of Council Regulation (EC) No 708/2007. Comments on the consultation document are sought by 13 March 2012. This is not a consultation on the Regulation itself, but on the proposals for implementing the Regulation in Northern Ireland. Most of the provisions of the Regulation are obligatory and Member States must therefore adopt them. However there are other measures in respect of which individual Member States can determine how they are to be implemented within the framework of the Regulation and it is on these measures (which will also appear in the implementing Statutory Rule) that the Department is consulting. This consultation period will last for 12 weeks commencing on 20 December 2011 and end on 13 March 2012.
