Marine Strategy Framework Directive Consultation: UK Initial Assessment and proposals for Good Environmental Status
This is a joint consultation between:
- Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra)
- the Northern Ireland Executive
- the Scottish Government

The Directive requires Member States to take measures to achieve or maintain Good Environmental Status (GES) for their seas by 2020. GES involves:
- protecting the marine environment
- preventing its deterioration
- restoring it where practical
- using marine resources sustainably.
We want your views on:
- the first stages of implementation
- a draft assessment of the state of the UK’s seas
- proposals for UK characteristics of GES
- proposals for UK targets and indicators of GES
- an impact assessment setting out potential implications of the proposed GES targets and indicators.
We will consult later on proposals for the UK monitoring programmes and measures for achieving GES.The summary of responses can be seen on the Gov.uk website (external link)
