In 2017, Spain adopted the Royal Decree 363/2017 of 8 April establishing a framework for maritime spatial planning, which transposes into the Spanish legislation Directive 2014/89/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 23 July 2015, establishing a framework for maritime spatial planning.

Spain has recently been moving forward on the technical development of Maritime Spatial Planning and is in the process of finalising its five MSPs, one for each of the five marine subdivisions and the public consultation on the maritime spatial plans for the 5 marine subdivisions was launched on 7 June and will be open until 25 June 2021.
