    Based on an analysis of legal and scientific aspects regarding the current situation with the establishment of MPAs in the Convention Area, we examine procedural and implementational measures for regulating a unified process by which the CCAMLR Commission can, on a scientific basis, establish and manage MPAs. A Research and Monitoring Plan (RMP) is considered as an integral part of such a unified process.
