    The UN General Assembly Resolution on Sustainable Fisheries of 9 December 2013 expressed concern for the continued threat to marine habitats and ecosystems from illegal, unregulated and unreported (IUU) fishing, and acknowledged the negative impact of these activities on food security and state economies, particularly in developing regions. As mandated by the fifteenth session of the FAO COFI Sub-Committee on Fish Trade and the thirty-second session of the FAO Committee on Fisheries in 2016, the Technical Consultation was convened by the Director-General of FAO to elaborate guidelines and other relevant criteria relating to catch documentation schemes. The Technical Consultation, funded by the Government of Norway, adopted the Voluntary Guidelines for Catch Documentation Schemes on 5 April 2017.

    This poster provide an important information about Catch Documentation Scheme (CDS). CDS is a system to determine throughout the supply chain whether fish originate from catches consistent with applicable national, regional and international conservation and management measures, established in accordance with relevant international obligations. As a trade-related measure to prevent, deter and eliminate Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated (IUU) fishing, CDS could function most effectively in syne rgy with other international instruments including Port State Measures Agreement (PSMA) and the Global Record of Fishing Vessels, Refrigerated Transport Vessels and Supply Vessels. The FAO Voluntary Guidelines for Catch Documentation Schemes is the first international policy document with comprehensive elaboration about CDS.
