FISHING VESSELS (EC DIRECTIVE ON HARMONISED SAFETY REGIME) REGULATIONS 1999

  1. The Committee has asked for a memorandum on the following point :

Regulation 11(3) prohibits persons from doing specified dishonest acts in relation to surveys and certificates of compliance of fishing vessels under the Regulations. Explain why the Regulations do not make it an offence for a person to do any of the prohibited acts.
