Information available in the CCEP on incidents of non-compliance with CM 26-01 paragraph 6, that prohibits dumping or discharging offal and discards south of 60°S, appear to be the result of mechanical failure. The information on offal management practices from other organisations relate to how and when offal should be discharged and largely reflects the provisions of CCAMLR’s CM 25-02, CM 25-03. The lack of a common theme in the relatively small (and declining) number of such reports do not indicate a specific action required to improve the implementation of CM 26-01 paragraph 6.
