Description

Map shows ‘red and yellow’ carding and ‘green’ delisting of third countries by the European Commission since the IUU Regulation entered into force in 2010. Countries identified as having inadequate measures in place to ensure their catch is legal may be issued with a formal warning (yellow card). The EU then engages formal discussions with these countries on how to address their shortcomings. If they fail to do so, they risk being identified as ‘non-cooperating’ and having their seafood banned from export to the EU market (red card). On making required improvements, these countries can be delisted (green card).
