COMMISSION REGULATION (EC) No 2090/98 of 30 September 1998 concerning the fishing vessel register of the Community

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 3760/92 of 20 December 1992, establishing a Community system of fisheries and aquaculture (1), as amended by Regulation (EC) No 1181/98 (2), and in particular Article 13 thereof,

Whereas the procedures for communicating information about the characteristics and identification features of EU fishing vessels to be used in connection with Community legislation should be harmonised and rationalised;

Whereas for the application of the Common Fisheries Policy it is appropriate to create a single reference database on the characteristics of vessels in the Community fishing fleet; whereas this database should be maintained independently of other applications;

Whereas the characteristics and external markings that are recorded in the database should be in accordance with Council Regulation (EEC) 2930/86 of 22 September 1986 defining characteristics for fishing vessels (3), as amended by Regulation (EC) No 3259/94 (4), and with Commission Regulation (EEC) No 1381/87 of 20 May 1987 establishing detailed rules concerning the marking and documentation of fishing vessels (5);

Whereas it is therefore necessary to repeal Regulation (EC) No 109/94 of 19 January 1994 concerning the fishing vessel register of the Community (6), as amended by Regulation (EC) No 493/96 (7);

Whereas the measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Management Committee for Fisheries and Aquaculture,

- all the changes which have occurred since the censuses where they affect the data.

Article 3

Each Member State shall communicate information relating to events required by Annexes I to V by digital transfer over a telecommunications network at the same time as the event is recorded by the authorities of the Member State concerned.
