Competent authorities must take action to help protect, conserve and restore the protected habitats and species of European sites. In order to clarify how this applies to the SEMS Management Scheme, actions can be divided into 5 types, as shown below with examples.

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 Survey

5. Completion of each authority’s undertakings regarding MS actions
