NAFO Inspection Area

The NAFO Scheme of Joint International Inspection and Surveillance (NCEM Chapter VI) has been in place since 1982. The objective is not only to monitor the activities of the NAFO-registered vessels for compliance but also to detect non-NAFO vessels engaging in IUU fishing activities.

In 2010 discussions were held on the possibility of NAFO having electronic accessibility available for inspectors to access all information regarding the fishing vessels operating in the NAFO Regulatory Area. It was noted that NEAFC had implemented a system for their inspection service to access electronic versions of relevant information on a secure website. It was deemed beneficial to harmonize the two websites and considering the benefits of NEAFC's experience in developing their Inspectors web area, NAFO pursued cooperation with NEAFC for the development of NAFO's Inspectors web area.
