    At WG-SM-18, the Secretariat presented the development and progress made on a Project List web database to support Research and Monitoring Plans (RMPs) for individual Marine Protected Areas (MPA), as recommended by SC-CAMLR-XXXVI. This paper reports on the updates made to the data structure model for the CCAMLR MPA Information Repository (CMIR), based on feedback received at WG-SM-18, through intersessional consultation, and following a review of the proposed RMPs from each MPA. The updated data structure model seeks to harmonise general principles across all of the RMPs.
