The Commission welcomes the provisional political agreement reached today between the European Parliament and the Council of the European Union on the revision of the fisheries control system proposed by the European Commission exactly 5 years ago with a view to a better implementation of the common fisheries policy. The revised rules modernise the way fishing activities of both EU vessels and those fishing in EU waters are controlled. The new rules help prevent overfishing, create a more effective and harmonised fisheries control system and ensure a level playing field between different sea basins and fleets.
