    The purpose of this Manual is to assist IOTC Members and Cooperating Non-Contracting Parties in achieving a better understanding of the actions that they need to take under the IOTC, by providing an overview of the Conservation and Management Measures (CMM’s) entailing active reporting requirements. The content is divided into six chapters. The first chapter provides a broad overview of the IOTC Resolutions and Conservation and Management measures adopted by the IOTC. The second chapter provides a detailed description of the requirements from the CPCs arising from the CMMs in relation to the main roles that CPCs play with regards to Coastal State responsibility. The third Chapter describes requirements and responsibilities of CPCs as Flag States. The fourth chapter describes requirements and responsibilities of CPCs as Port States. The fifth chapter describes requirements and responsibilities of CPCs as Market States. The sixth chapter describes the cross-cutting CMMS and duties under basic texts. This manual should be viewed as a living document that can be revised and improved by all parties as experience is expanded in the implementation of the IOTC Conservation and Management Measures.
