European Fisheries Control Agency

The European Fisheries Control Agency has launched a new logo

The European Fisheries Control Agency (EFCA) has announced a refreshed look that includes a new logo and visual identity. 

The new visual identity aims to update the image of EFCA as the EU Agency promoting the highest standards in the implementation of the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP). 

The logo has been modernised and simplified to better integrate in a digital environment giving a recognisable and consistent image to EFCA in the concert of the EU decentralised agencies, executive agencies and other bodies as joint undertakings, etc.

You can get acquainted with the new look on EFCA website and social media platforms. The change will be rolled out over the upcoming weeks and months and it will be very soon present in EFCA´s corporate publications and promotional material.

The EFCA took over the rotating chairmanship of the European Cooperation on Coast Guard functions in May 2020 for twelve months. The chairmanship is formalised through a Tripartite Working Arrangement between the Agency EFCA, the European Maritime Safety Agency (EMSA) and the European Border and Coast Guard Agency (Frontex) 

The EU cooperation on Coast Guard functions focus on further enhancing operational support to European national authorities carrying out Coast Guard functions at national and Union level, and where appropriate, at international level.

In particular, during this period, the Practical Handbook on European cooperation on coast guard functions will keep a high profile. This is a key guidance document being developed under the coordination of the three EU agencies in close cooperation with the relevant competent national authorities. The handbook consists of a catalogue of services and training opportunities for Member States made possible through the cooperation, best practice guidelines and manuals, a compilation of regional cooperation mechanisms and fact sheets identifying the Member State authorities. In close cooperation with the Member States authorities, the three agencies will also enhance the update and sharing of maritime data, synergies on Earth observation, sharing of data from surveillance assets, cross-sector training and capacity building, cross-sector risk analysis and multipurpose operations at sea.

´The three agencies aim at best helping the needs of the Member States for cross-sectorial activities especially during these difficult times when support of the EU agencies is mostly needed´, said the Executive Director Pascal Savouret.
