Maritime and Coastguard Agency - Government Department


Maritime and Coastguard Agency ( MCA ) - Responsible for pollution from shipping and offshore installations


About the Maritime and Coastguard Agency ( MCA )

We are an island nation and 97% of the United Kingdom’s trade by weight is by sea, and there can be no doubt that shipping is vital to the UK economy. Our fishermen and fishing communities also rely on the sea for their livelihood, and many of us use beaches and the coast for leisure and sport. We have 11,072 miles of coastline.

The Maritime and Coastguard Agency is responsible throughout the United Kingdom for implementing the Government’s maritime safety policy. That includes co-ordinating search and rescue at sea through Her Majesty’s Coastguard, and checking that ships meet UK and international safety rules. They work to prevent the loss of lives at the coast and at sea, to ensure that ships are safe, and to prevent coastal pollution Safer Lives, Safer Ships, Cleaner Seas.

The Agency are putting increasing effort into prevention work and a measure of their success is when accidents do not happen, or where they intervene to minimise their impact.

What the Maritime and Coastguard Agency Do:

The European Commission offers funding to enable countries close to being ready for, or who have just gained membership of the European Union to enter into twinning partnerships with Member States. Countries seeking accession have to harmonise a number of areas of government and legislation (eg justice, health, law enforcement, competition, transport, education etc) with EC legislation.

The MCA funds its own research programme which is driven by the objectives and Ministerial Targets set out in the Business Plan and Forward Look.
