COMMISSION REGULATION (EC) No 1281/2005

of 3 August 2005

on the management of fishing licences and the minimal information to be contained therein

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 2371/2002 of 20 December 2002 on the conservation and sustainable exploitation of fishery resources under the Common Fisheries Policy (1), and in particular Article 13(3) and Article 22(3),

Whereas:

(1)

It is necessary to establish at Community level rules on the minimum information to be contained in a fishing licence in order to facilitate and ensure a homogeneous control of fishing activities, and in particular information on the licence holder, the vessel, the fishing capacity and the fishing gear.

(2)

The fishing licence constitutes a relevant fleet management tool, in particular concerning the capacity limitations as laid down in Articles 12 and 13 of Regulation (EC) No 2371/2002 and in Council Regulation (EC) No 639/2004 of 30 March 2004 on the management of fishing fleets registered in the Community outermost regions (2). The total capacity of a Member State’s fleet as expressed in the licences issued may not exceed those limitations and in particular the levels arising from the application of Commission Regulations (EC) No 1438/2003 of 12 August 2003 laying down implementing rules on the Community Fleet Policy as defined in Chapter III of Council Regulation (EC) No 2371/2002 (3) and (EC) No 2104/2004 of 9 December 2004 laying down detailed implementing rules for Council Regulation (EC) No 639/2004 on the management of fishing fleets registered in the Community outermost regions.

(3)

With regard to the importance of the fishing licence as an instrument for both fleet management and control and inspection of fishing activities, Member States must ensure that the information contained in the licence is clear and unambiguous and corresponds at all times to the actual situation.

(4)

According to Article 11(3) of Regulation (EC) No 2371/2002, the fishing licence must be withdrawn by a Member State in order for the vessel to be withdrawn from the fleet with public aid. The capacity corresponding to that licence cannot be replaced. On the other hand, if the withdrawal of a vessel has not benefited from public aid, the capacity and the capacity licence are replaceable as long as the provisions of Articles 12 and 13 of Regulation (EC) No 2371/2002 on reference levels and the entry/exit regime of the fleet are respected.

(5)

The information contained in the licence should correspond to the information contained in the Community fishing fleet register.

(6)

The information included in the licence should be set out in accordance with Council Regulation (EEC) No 2930/86 of 22 September 1986 defining characteristics for fishing vessels (4) and Commission Regulation (EC) No 26/2004 of 30 December 2003 on the Community fishing fleet register (5).

(7)

Council Regulation (EC) No 3690/93 (6) established a Community system laying down rules for the minimum information to be contained in fishing licences. The present Regulation should apply from the date of repeal of that Regulation.

(8)

The measures envisaged in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Committee for Fisheries and Aquaculture,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Court of Justice

Official Journal of the European Union

L 203/19


AMENDMENTS TO THE RULES OF PROCEDURE OF THE COURT OF JUSTICE OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES

THE COURT,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community, and in particular the sixth paragraph of Article 223 thereof,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Atomic Energy Community, and in particular the sixth paragraph of Article 139 thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

For some time the duration of procedures before the Court of Justice, particularly in preliminary reference proceedings, has been increasing and it is desirable, especially having regard to the enlargement of the Union, that certain stages in the procedure should be speeded up and simplified.

(2)

The period allowed for submission of applications for a hearing ought to be reduced and the obligation to inform the national court and to hear the parties ought in some cases to be removed where the Court is to give its decision by order in certain cases where the answer to the request for a preliminary ruling is straightforward.

(3)

Technical developments have led to increasing use of electronic means for the transmission of documents and electronic communication has become increasingly reliable as a means of communication. The Court ought to be enabled to accommodate these developments by having the power to determine the criteria for a procedural document sent by electronic means to be deemed to be the original of the document.

(4)

Finally, the provisions on the grant of legal aid ought to be amended to provide that an order refusing in whole or in part an application for aid must state the reasons for that refusal,

With the Council’s approval given on 28 June 2005.

HAS ADOPTED THE FOLLOWING AMENDMENTS TO ITS RULES OF PROCEDURE:

Article 1

The Rules of Procedure of the Court of Justice of 19 June 1991 (OJ L 176, 4.7.1991, p. 7, with corrigendum in OJ L 383, 29.12.1992, p. 117), as amended on 21 February 1995 (OJ L 44, 28.2.1995, p. 61), 11 March 1997 (OJ L 103, 19.4.1997, p. 1, with corrigendum in OJ L 351, 23.12.1997, p. 72), 16 May 2000 (OJ L 122, 24.5.2000, p. 43), 28 November 2000 (OJ L 322, 19.12.2000, p. 1), 3 April 2001 (OJ L 119, 27.4.2001, p. 1), 17 September 2002 (OJ L 272, 10.10.2002, p. 24, with corrigendum in OJ L 281, 19.10.2002), 8 April 2003 (OJ L 147, 14.6.2003, p. 17), 19 April 2004 (OJ L 132, 29.4.2004, p. 2) and 20 April 2004 (OJ L 127, 29.4.2004, p. 107), are amended as follows:

1.

The following new paragraph 7 shall be added to Article 37:

‘7.   Without prejudice to the first subparagraph of paragraph 1 or to paragraphs 2 to 5, the Court may by decision determine the criteria for a procedural document sent to the Registry by electronic means to be deemed to be the original of that document. That decision shall be published in the Official Journal of the European Union.’;

2.

In the third sentence of Article 44a the words ‘of one month’ shall be replaced by the words ‘of three weeks’;

3.

In Article 76(3) the second subparagraph shall be replaced by the following:

‘The Chamber shall make an order from which no appeal shall lie. Where the application for legal aid is refused in whole or in part, the order shall state the reasons for that refusal.’;

4.

Article 104(1) shall be amended as follows:

‘1.   The decisions of national courts or tribunals referred to in Article 103 shall be communicated to the Member States in the original version, accompanied by a translation into the official language of the State to which they are addressed. Where appropriate on account of the length of the national court’s decision, such translation shall be replaced by the translation into the official language of the State to which it is addressed of a summary of the decision, which will serve as a basis for the position to be adopted by that State. The summary shall include the full text of the question or questions referred for a preliminary ruling. That summary shall contain, in particular, in so far as that information appears in the national court’s decision, the subject matter of the main proceedings, the essential arguments of the parties in the main proceedings, a succinct presentation of the reasoning in the reference for a preliminary ruling and the case-law and the provisions of Community and domestic law relied on.

In the cases governed by the third paragraph of Article 23 of the Statute, the decisions of national courts or tribunals shall be notified to the States, other than the Member States, which are parties to the EEA Agreement and also to the EFTA Surveillance Authority in the original version, accompanied by a translation of the decision, or where appropriate of a summary, into one of the languages mentioned in Article 29(1), to be chosen by the addressee of the notification.

Where a non-Member State has the right to take part in proceedings for a preliminary ruling pursuant to the fourth paragraph of Article 23 of the Statute, the original version of the decision of the national court or tribunal shall be communicated to it together with a translation of the decision, or where appropriate of a summary, into one of the languages mentioned in Article 29(1), to be chosen by the non-Member State concerned.’;

5.

The text of Article 104(3) shall be replaced by the following:

‘3.   Where a question referred to the Court for a preliminary ruling is identical to a question on which the Court has already ruled, or where the answer to such a question may be clearly deduced from existing case-law, the Court may, after hearing the Advocate ACT, at any time give its decision by reasoned order in which reference is made to its previous judgment or to the relevant case-law.

The Court may also give its decision by reasoned order, after informing the court or tribunal which referred the question to it, hearing any observations submitted by the persons referred to in Article 23 of the Statute and after hearing the Advocate ACT, where the answer to the question referred to the Court for a preliminary ruling admits of no reasonable doubt.’;

6.

In the third sentence of Article 104(4) the words ‘of one month’ shall be replaced by the words ‘of three weeks’;

7.

In the second sentence of Article 120 the words ‘of one month’ shall be replaced by the words ‘of three weeks’.

Article 2

These amendments to the Rules of Procedure, which are authentic in the languages mentioned in Article 29(1) of these Rules, shall be published in the Official Journal of the European Union and shall enter into force on the first day of the second month following their publication.
