POA Decision – 2000/05/17-01 – Consolidation of Fishing Operation Policies in the Prevention Manual

The Panel of Administrators approved the consolidation of the Fishing Operations policies from the Prevention Division Policy and Procedure Manual into the new Prevention Manual. The affected policies are Policy Nos. 85.00 — 85.90, except Policy No. 85.13 which is still being worked on by the Policy and Regulation Development Bureau. The consolidated policies appear in the new Manual format. They continue the substantive requirements of the Policy and Procedure Manual policies, as those requirements existed prior to their effective date, with any wording changes necessary to reflect legislative and regulatory changes since the Policy and Procedure Manual policies were issued. The effective date for the consolidated policies is July 1, 2000. On that date, the consolidated policies became "published policy" and Policy Nos. 85.00 — 85.90 (except Policy No. 85.13) ceased to be "published policy". The consolidation of the Fishing Operations policies is part of a larger project that will eventually result in all prevention policies being consolidated into the new Prevention Manual or repealed or retired as appropriate.
