The European Fisheries Control Agency (EFCA) is organising a seminar dedicated to the operational implementation of the European cooperation on coast guard functions.
Amendments to their Founding Regulations published on 16 September establish that the European Border and Coast Guard Agency (FRONTEX), the European Maritime Safety Agency (EMSA) and the European Fisheries Control Agency (EFCA) shall cooperate, each within their mandate, to support the national authorities carrying out coastguard functions.
The European Commission and Member States authorities responsible for fisheries control and other coast guard missions will therefore work alongside FRONTEX, EMSA and EFCA for analysing the ongoing cooperation and prepare the collaboration framework for 2017.
The seminar will be an opportunity to evaluate and share views on the implementation roadmap and the new tasks for EFCA.
When: Tuesday 29 and Wednesday 30 November 2016
Where: Catania (Italy). Hotel NH Parco Degli Aragonesi
Press meeting: Wednesday 30 November 2016, 16:00
