  • Workshops and seminars for EU Member States

Throughout the year, the EFCA organises class room and on-the-spot training courses for officials from EU Member States’ administrations involved in the implementation of the regulation against IUU fishing.

Through these EFCA training events, the principal objectives are to provide guidance on technical issues with regard to the verification of IUU catch certificates, provide a platform for the exchange of experiences and the development of best practices, and establish a network of administrative cooperation and exchange of information among the Member States.
