PH taken off EU fish trade blacklist
MetadataShow full item record
The European Commission has removed the Philippines from the list of countries challenged with the implementation of measures to address illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing(IUUF). In a statement released on its website, the European Commission said it has revoked the "yellow card" warning on the Philippines as it acknowledged the government's efforts to partner with European countries in fighting IUUF. The European Union lauded the significant progress the Philippines made in its policy and structural reforms, most notably the passing of Republic Act (RA) 10654, which amended the Philippine Fisheries Code of 1998, otherwise known as RA 8550, on February 27, 2015.
