Capacity building facilitates the uniform application of the rules of the CFP by Member States and provides guidance to them in respecting their obligations under the CFP while joint deployment plans address specific, recurrent compliance problems in certain areas and fisheries. Uniform inspection procedures by national inspectors also make it possible to document all cases of non-compliance in a transparent manner.
By monitoring national means, training national
experts in line with Community guidelines established by the Commission,
providing a communication platform for control, inspection and surveillance
and facilitating the exchange of data and guaranteeing its reliability,
the EFCA contributes to ensuring that the rules of the CFP are applied
in a uniform way.
Ultimately, by building capacities in Member States
to apply uniformly the rules of the Common Fisheries Policy, the
Agency contributes to building a European level playing field for
the European fishing industry with the primary objective of ensuring
compliance with the rules thus providing for a long term, biological
and ecological sustainable, exploitation of resources which constitute
a common good.
