Data Collection Framework - DCF

Liaison meetings

According to article 9(6) of the Regulation (EC) 2017/1004, RCGs shall coordinate with each other and with the Commission, where issues affect several marine regions. In order to create a forum where issues that affect several marine regions can be assessed and discussed, a Liaison meeting is organised every year after the RCG meetings have taken place.

Formally, the Liaison meeting is an expert group to assist the Commission on data collection issues. Its participants are the chairs of STECF EWGs on data collection, the chairs (incoming and outgoing) of all RCGs and of PGECON, representatives of the core DCF data end-users (e.g. ICES, ICCAT and GFCM), the chairs of Regional Databases steering groups and the Commission.
