A Code of Practice

These arrangements take account of the work and consultations that have taken place in the Department of Environment Transport and Regions sponsored Fishing Industry Safety Group (FISG), sub-group on submarine and fishing vessel matters, including the views and concerns put forward by the members of the Fishing Industry Liaison Meeting (FILM), representing the UK fishing industry.
