Overview

This part of Annual Report Part 2 (AR Pt2) is intended to comprise the “hold on file” of all CCMs responses to implementation-type obligations that applied in prior years.  The list contains only implementation-type obligations that CCMs have reported on previously and that continue to be applicable in the reporting year covered by the AR Pt2.  


This list has been pre-populated with each CCMs response in AR Pt2 that your CCM submitted in the previous year.  Each year CCMs are expected to check, and as needed update, their national statements of implementation and confirm that the information therein is current for this reporting year.  Note any CCMs who are completing Annual Report Part 2 for the first time will also need to respond to all questions in Annual Report Part 2 (Prior Year Obligations).   


The below figure provides an overview of the structure of Annual Report Part 2 (Prior Year Obligations) list.

# = CMM has some obligations that will be considered in 2021 Compliance Monitoring Scheme

Note: green headings (above) are based on groupings that are used in the "WCPFC Suggested Checklist of Reporting Requirements 2021" document.  Whereas within Annual Report Part 2 (Prior Year Obligations) the questions are only grouped by CMM.  


Navigating to Annual Report Part 2 (Prior Year Obligations) list


From the WCPFC Intranet Home Page, click on “Annual Report Part 2 (Prior Year Obligations)” link (orange circle in screen shot below).  This will take you to “ARP2 Previously Responded” page.


There are a number of questions under each category heading.  Click on the arrow sign (see circle in green below) next to each category, this will expand the questions to be answered, below each CMM/ Measure heading. For example highlighted in yellow in the shot below there are two (2) implementation questions for CMM 2004-03 CMM Specification for the Marking and Identification of Fishing Vessels.

Similar to past years, the questions are sequentially numbered starting with the oldest CMMs to most recent CMMs.  A prefix of “Pr” is used for the Annual Report Part 2 (Prior Year Obligations) questions.  


This list has been pre-populated with each CCMs response in AR Pt2 that your CCM submitted in the previous year.  Each year CCMs are expected to check, and as needed update, their national statements of implementation and confirm that the information therein is current for this reporting year.

Guide to answer an Annual Report Part 2 question

To answer each question, click on the Edit icon  next to the question number (see yellow  box above).  This will take you to a screen that will enable you to answer that particular question.  The full text of the obligation (CMM paragraph or Convention Article) may be viewed by clicking on the blue text that is shown in the individual question view next to the REQUIREMENT heading.  



At the bottom of each question, the Secretariat has some provided “Notes and Suggested Guidelines” to assist CCMs with completing their report (see blue circle above).  The Secretariat has indicated those obligations that will be assessed in the CMS review process with a note [CMR RY202x] in the “Notes and Suggested Guideline” field.  Notation has also been included if there are possible linkages to WCPFC online content, including online Compliance Case lists (eg Compliance Case FAD Sets Alleged Infringements), other Annual Report Part 2 lists (eg. MTU Audit Inspections Online List) and website material (eg https://www.wcpfc.int/hsbi-summary-statistics).
