    - Modernisation

    - Scrapping

Problems of magp
Problems of MAGP:

  • Too complicated

  • Not ambitious enough

  • Implementation not in « real time »

  • No taking account of technical progress

  • Rules on capacity and subsidies in various regulatory texts


Results
Results

  • Reduction of Fleets

  • Most MS complied with targets

    But:

  • Overcapacity continues!


The cfp reform management
The CFP reform: Management

  • Multi-annual management plans

  • Recovery plans

  • New fleet policy

  • Control

  • Transparency and stakeholder involvement


New fleet policy
New fleet policy

  • Entry /exit regime

  • Decommissioning in the framework of MAMP’s and recovery plans

  • No capacity increases possible (safety)

  • No more capacity-enhancing subsidies


Subsidies
Subsidies

  • For construction: end 2004; stricter entry/exit rule;

  • For exports: end 2004, stricter conditions

  • For modernisation: no increase of fishing capacity (no aid for engine replacement);


Progressive constraints on fleet capacity imposed by EU law

Extension of MAGP IV

Revision of tonnage objectives to take account of re-measurement

All fleet has to be measured in GT

Conversion of tonnage objectives GRT → GT

Re-segmentation of the fleet

No more aid to build vessels

MAGP IV objectives (expressed in GT* for tonnage)

Capacity withdrawn with aid not to be replaced.

Capacity built with aid has to be compensated by capacity withdrawn without aid

MAGP III objectives

MAGP IV objectives (GT* for tonnage)

Capacity withdrawn with aid not to be replaced.

Entry-exit regime:

capacity cannot increase

MAGP IV objectives (GRT for tonnage)

Capacity withdrawn with aid not to be replaced.
