The Country Information Profile for Spain now includes the latest developments regarding the progress on MSP. Currently, the Ministry of Ecological Transition (MITECO) is the authority for the coast and the marine environment as well as for biodiversity, while the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food is the authority for the fisheries sector. Spain does currently not yet have a MSP at the national level. However, it is already actively working towards European deadlines through the work carried out by the Inter-Ministerial Commission on Marine Strategies (Comisión Interministerial de Estrategias Marinas - CIEM) and its Working Group for the Ordination of the Maritime Space (Grupo de Trabajo de Ordenación del Espacio Marítimo – GT-OEM), which is currently coordinating the tasks for creating the ordination plans (Planes de Ordenación del Espacio Marítimo- POEM).
