In South Africa the two pieces of Legislation most commonly used in the management of MPA’s is the NEMA PAA (National Environmental Management Act – Protected Areas Act) and the MLRA (Marine Living Resources Act). These Acts are enforced by MPA staff who are appointed as FCO’s (Fishery Control Officers) to enforce the MLRA Regulations and EMI’s (Environmental Management Inspectors) to enforce the NEMA PAA Regulations and the various other NEMA Regulations (Pollution, Air Quality) if they are trained and required to do so.
