Actions included in the SEMS Management Scheme (MS)

  In order to clarify what the MS contains, actions can be divided into 5 types:

  1. Reporting harmful activities to other authorities under whose jurisdiction they fall
  2. General good practice to comply with the Habitats Regulations
  3. General good practice to not harm habitats or species
  4. Actions that should be reported through SEMS Annual Monitoring
  5. Completion of each authority’s undertakings regarding MS actions

Removing Type 1-3 operations from the MS enables the RAs to focus on activities where the MG can deliver the requirements of the Habitats Regulations.  Examples of each of the 5 types of action are given below:
