20th Regular Session of the Technical and Compliance Committee

Agenda Item 6.3 Addressing outstanding CCFS cases


At WCPFC20, the Commission requested CCMs to provide to the Secretariat information on the domestic statute of limitations, the allowable period to bring a prosecution, for various types of cases: fisheries offences and criminal offences (TCC19 Summary Report paragraph 170 (b)).  Noting that TCC has previously expressed a preference to address the issue of cases older than 24 months in the CCFS in a systematic way, TCC20 will consider the information provided by CCMs and provide advice and recommendations to WCPFC20.
