1. By way of derogation from Article 1(2) of Regulation (EC)

No 1627/94, all Community vessels of an overall length equal

to or greater than eight metres carrying on board or using any

gears for cod fishing in the Baltic Sea in accordance with Article

3 of Regulation (EC) No 2187/2005 shall hold a special permit

for fishing for cod in the Baltic Sea.

2. Member States may issue the special permit for fishing for

Council Regulation (EC) No 27/2005 of 22 December 2004

fixing for 2005 the fishing opportunities and associated

conditions for certain fish stocks and groups of fish stocks,

applicable in Community waters and, for Community vessels,

in waters where catch limitations are required (1). However, a

Member State may issue a special permit for fishing for cod to a

Community vessel, flying the flag of that Member State, not

holding a special fishing permit in 2005 if it ensures that at

least an equivalent capacity, measured in kilowatts (kW), is

prevented from fishing in the Baltic Sea with any gear

referred to in paragraph 1.

3. Each Member State concerned shall establish and maintain

a list of vessels holding a special permit for fishing for cod in

the Baltic Sea and make it available on its official website.

as set out in point 2 of Annex IV to Regulation (EEC)

No 2807/83.

2. For vessels fitted with VMS, Member States shall verify

centres (FMC) corresponds to activities recorded in the

logbook by using VMS data. Such cross-checks shall be

recorded in computer-readable form for a period of three years.

3. Each Member State shall maintain and make available on
