Marine Strategy Framework Directive MSFD – Consultation report published

The Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD) requires Member States to take measures to achieve or maintain Good Environmental Status for their seas by 2020.  In 2012, the UK Government and devolved administrations carried out a joint consultation on the early stages of the implementation of the Marine Strategy Framework Directive.  The Government’s response to this consultation has now been published, along with the final Impact Assessment, UK Initial Assessment of the UK’s seas, and characteristics and targets of Good Environmental Status.  For more information see the Defra website.
