1. The Commission has undertaken an evaluation of the implementation and impacts of Regulation (EC) No 1224/2009 (the Control Regulation), establishing a Community control system for ensuring compliance with the rules of the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) in the period 2010-2016.

2. The evaluation responds to the legal obligation set in Article 118 of the Control Regulation, which calls on the Commission to report to the European Parliament and the Council on the status of implementation of the Control Regulation in Member States every five years, and to evaluate its impacts of the CFP five years after its entry into force.

3. As part of the Regulatory Fitness and Performance Programme (REFIT) by the Commission, the evaluation also included an assessment of whether the Regulation was fit for purpose by focusing on its simplification and regulatory burden reduction aspects. The evaluation covers all EU Member States. The main provisions of the Control Regulation have been investigated to assess their impacts in the promotion of a level playing field and development of a culture of compliance in respect of the CFP.
