(2014)
Parry, M.E.V.
The JNCC’s Marine Habitat Classification for Britain and Ireland has been widely used by Government bodies, academic institutions, the private sector and regional projects. It is generally thought to be highly beneficial, but a number of concerns have surfaced as the Classification continues to be used for a widening range of purposes. There is now scope to further develop the Classification in response to issues highlighted by users. This Report summarises user issues in order to identify and prioritise future development work.
 

Introduction

 
There is now scope to further develop the JNCC Classification in response to issues highlighted by users. JNCC recognises that the JNCC Classification needs to be kept up to date and has therefore appointed a permanent member of staff who will be responsible for the revision and upkeep of the JNCC Classification as well as responding to related queries.
