Conservation and management measures binding on Members
of the Commission must be adopted by a two-thirds majority
of Members present and voting. Individual members
objecting to a decision are not bound by it . If objections
to a measure are made by more than one-third of the
Members of the Commission, the other Members are not
bound by that measure; but this does not preclude any

Recommendations concerning conservation and management

It is under the responsibility of Members to ensure
that action is taken under their national legislation
to implement conservation and management measures which
become binding on it.
The Members of the Commission are also expected to
cooperate in the exchange of information regarding any
fishing for stocks covered by this Agreement by nationals
of any State or entity which is not a Member of the
