Entry into force notes
These Regulations will come into force on 14 March 1999.

These Regulations implement for Great Britain Community legislation on the assessment of the environmental effects of certain projects in respect of fish farming in marine waters. The Regulations apply to applications as regards fish farming in marine waters, made on or after 14th March 1999, where any part of the proposed development is in a sensitive area, or the proposed development is designed to hold a biomass of 100 tonnes or greater, or will extend to 0.1 hectare or more of the surface area. The Regulations provide that decisions on whether consideration of environmental information in respect of such applications for fish farming in marine waters is required shall be taken by the "relevant authority". Regulation 3 provides that the relevant authority shall not grant consent for fish farming in marine waters where the project is likely to have significant effects on the environment, without taking into consideration environmental information in respect of the proposed project. Regulations 4 to 15 are concerned with the procedures following applications for consent. Regulation 15 implements Article 7 of the Directive by providing for consultation between Member States in cases of development likely to have significant effects in another Member State. Schedule 1 describes the selection criteria in relation to screening opinions of a relevant authority. Schedule 2 sets out the information that is required in an environmental statement. Schedule 3 lists the bodies to be consulted by the relevant authority under the Regulations.
