For CCAMLR Commission and Scientific Committee meetings, Roman numerals are used to identify the meetings and all meeting documents. This creates administrative complexity and can cause confusion for readers. The Secretariat proposes that CCAMLR retain the reference to meeting number in all reports and documents, as at present, but replace the roman numerals with Arabic numbers. It also recommends that to avoid working group reports being referenced to both as the reports and as annexes to the Scientific Committee report, they retain a single reference throughout.
