20th Regular Session of the Scientific Committee

Agenda Item 1.5 Reporting arrangements


In accordance with Rule 33 of the Commission’s Rules of Procedure, the text of all decisions adopted by the SC20 will be distributed to all members, territories, and observers within seven working days following the adoption of such decision.

SC20 will develop a DRAFT Summary Report, which will be adopted intersessionally with an Executive Summary. The Executive Summary will include a synopsis of stock status and management advice and implications, research plans, findings or conclusions on the stock status, reports, and recommendations as directed by the Commission or at the initiative of the SC (Paragraph 2, Article 12 of the Convention).

The WCPFC Secretariat will hire a lead rapporteur to produce a DRAFT Summary Report, and the Theme Convenors will arrange their own support rapporteurs as needed.
