    Since its inception in 1992 the CCAMLR Scheme of International Scientific Observation  the complexity of documenting procedures, variety of sampling requirements and associated data management have all increased. Given  the likely continued increase in complexity it is essential to have processes in place to review, revise and adapt existing procedures to ensure that the scheme overall remains robust.   This is a scoping paper to initiate discussion on a task group with representation from all interested parties (including WG-FSA, WG-EMM, WG-IMAF and SCIC) to review observer sampling requirements across all fishing sectors and conservation measures.
