    Report of the Technical Consultation on Voluntary Guidelines for Transshipment
    Rome, 30 May–3 June and 7 July 2022
    2022
    The Technical Consultation on Voluntary Guidelines for Transshipment was held in person and virtually from 30 May to 3 June 2022, and resumed in virtual mode on 7 July 2022. It was attended by 63 FAO Members and by 18 FAO Observers. The Technical Consultation considered the draft voluntary guidelines for transshipment, as concluded by an Expert Consultation on Voluntary Guidelines for Transshipment (virtual mode, 11-15 October and 3 November 2021), as a good basis for the discussions. The Technical Consultation successfully completed the review of the draft and adopted the Voluntary Guidelines for Transshipment which address the regulation, monitoring and control of transshipment of fish, which have not been previously landed, whether processed or not. The objective of the Voluntary Guidelines is to provide assistance to States, RFMO/As, regional economic integration organizations and other intergovernmental organizations when developing new transshipment regulations, revising existing regulations and integrating these within the broader regulatory framework.

    Voluntary Guidelines for Transshipment / Directives volontaires relatives au transbordement / Directrices voluntarias para los transbordos 2023
    The Voluntary Guidelines for Transshipment address the regulation, monitoring and control of transshipment of fish, which have not been previously landed, whether processed or not. They are elaborated to complement and support existing and new efforts and policies recognizing that all available means in accordance with international law and other international instruments, should be used to prevent, deter and eliminate illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing and fishing related activities in support of IUU fishing. Les Directives volontaires relatives au transbordement traitent de la réglementation, du suivi et du contrôle du transbordement de poisson qui n'a pas encore été débarqué, qu'il ait été transformé ou non. Elles sont élaborées pour compléter et soutenir les efforts et les politiques existants et à venir, en reconnaissant que tous les moyens disponibles, conformément au droit international et à d'autres instruments internationaux, devraient être utilisés pour prévenir, contrecarrer et éliminer la pêche illicite, non déclarée et non réglementée (INDNR) et les activités connexes qui soutiennent la pêche INDNR. Las Directrices voluntarias para los transbordos abordan la reglamentación, el seguimiento y el control de los transbordos de pescado que no haya sido desembarcado previamente, sea elaborado o no. Se establecen para complementar y respaldar las iniciativas y las políticas existentes y nuevas, pues se reconoce que deberían utilizarse todos los medios disponibles de conformidad con el derecho internacional y otros instrumentos internacionales para prevenir, desalentar y eliminar la pesca ilegal, no declarada y no reglamentada (INDNR) y las actividades relacionadas con la pesca en apoyo de la pesca INDNR.
