The Administrative Board of the European Fisheries Control Agency endorsed the evaluation mandate for the next Five-Year Independent External Evaluation of EFCA. The evaluation will provide an external and independent review of Agency’s progress and achievements for the period 2017-2021.
Based on the evaluation findings, the Administrative Board will issue recommendations to the Commission regarding possible changes to the Founding Regulation and Agency’s working practices.
This evaluation responds to the legal obligation set out in EFCA´s Founding Regulation, which calls on the Administrative Board of the Agency to commission, every five years, an independent external evaluation of the implementation of the Regulation. The past five-year independent external evaluations covered the period 2007-2011 and 2012-2016.
