The NOC regularly responds to public consultations, enquiries and parliamentary questions. As well as responding individually, we also seek to produce a coordinated response from the marine science community working mainly through our NOC Association partners, but sometimes in collaboration with devolved administrations in Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales, as well as with our colleagues in Europe.
We also provide input to both NERC and RCUK coordinated responses. We provide responses in the following areas: Marine Spatial Planning and Licensing Marine Renewable Energy Deep Seafloor Minerals Carbon Capture and Storage/Geoengineering Fisheries Climate UK and European Policy (e.g. the Marine Strategy Framework Directive) Alien Invasive Species Government Strategy Education
