      In accordance with Conservation Measure 10-10, paragraph 3(i), SCIC shall consider the Summary CCAMLR Compliance Report taking into account any additional information received since its posting on the CCAMLR website 30 days prior to the meeting.

      SCIC shall adopt by consensus, an annual Provisional CCAMLR Compliance Report that shall record any findings of non-compliance. This report shall include an assessment of compliance status, in accordance with Annex 10-10/B, as well as recommendations to the Commission in accordance with Conservation Measure 10-10, paragraph 3(ii).

      The Commission shall consider the Provisional CCAMLR Compliance Report and adopt a CCAMLR Compliance Report.

      The 36th Antarctic Treaty Consultative Meeting (ATCM XXXVI) in Brussels, Belgium, 22–29 May, invited CCAMLR to consider appropriate means within its jurisdiction to support search and rescue (SAR) efforts and to improve vessel safety within the CAMLR Convention Area. The Commission is invited to consider this matter, including the possibility of providing support to SAR efforts in the Southern Ocean through the conditional release of CCAMLR VMS data.

      3.1.2.4     Other conservation measures

      SCIC will consider information on the implementation and operation of conservation measures in force during 2012/13 that have not been addressed in the Compliance Evaluation Procedure.

      3.1.3     Proposals for new and revised measures

      SCIC will consider proposals for the revision of conservation measures in force and proposals for the adoption of new conservation measures.

      SCIC will consider the effectiveness of CM 10-10 in evaluating and addressing non-compliance, and report to the Commission on its findings and recommendations for improving CM 10-10.

      3.2     IUU fishing in Convention Area
      3.2.2     IUU Vessel Lists

      SCIC will review reports submitted by Contracting Parties or non-Contracting Parties on measures taken to exercise effective control over their flagged vessels included on the NCP-IUU Vessel List or the CP-IUU Vessel List in 2012.

      SCIC will consider the Provisional NCP-IUU Vessel List and the Provisional CP-IUU Vessel List for 2013 and any additional information provided in relation to vessels included in the Lists.

      Following consideration of any information and evidence provided by Contracting Parties or non-Contracting Parties pertaining to vessels included on the NCP-IUU Vessel List or the CP-IUU Vessel List adopted in 2012, SCIC will recommend to the Commission if any vessels should be removed from either list.

      SCIC shall, by consensus, adopt a Proposed NCP-IUU Vessel List and a Proposed CP-IUU Vessel List which shall be provided to the Commission for approval.
