    The United States  proposes to revise the text of the CCAMLR System of International Scientific Observation (SISO) to implement certain recommendations of the SISO Review Panel and establish requirements and procedures to safeguard observers, including pre-deployment safety checks and emergency action plans. We also propose  that the Commission adopt a non-binding Resolution to encourage Contracting Parties to apply the data collection and observer safety provisions of SISO, mutatis mutandis, to their national observers deployed in CCAMLR fisheries.
