    The Agreement on Port State Measures to Prevent, Deter andEliminate Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated Fishing (PSMA) is thefirst binding international agreement to target Illegal, Unreported andUnregulated (IUU) fishing. It aims to prevent, deter and eliminate IUUfishing by preventing foreign fishing vessels that engage in IUU fishingfrom using ports and landing catches. It represents a potent global andnational governance framework to combat IUU fishing, contributingto the long-term conservation and sustainable use of marine resourcesand ecosystems. To enable PSMA Parties to determine the mostappropriate measures to enhance compliance with the PSMA, FAOwas requested to carry out assessments of national policies,legislation, institutional arrangements and fisheries monitoring, andcontrol and surveillance systems against the provisions of the PSMAand related international instruments and mechanisms, and to draftnational strategies and action plans accordingly.

    The FAO Agreement of Port State Measures to Prevent, Deter and Eliminate Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated Fishing (the PSMA) was approved by the FAO Conference at its Thirty-sixth Session under paragraph 1 of Article XIV of the FAO Constitution. The Agreement, which is binding on the Parties, entered into force on 5 June 2016. As of 17 February 2017, there were 42 Parties to the Agreement, including the European Union. Whilst this represents a major achievement in the global effort to combat illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing, the Parties to the PSMA should now work together towards its effective implementation, including by encouraging the non-Parties to adhere to the Agreement.

    Report of the Fourth Meeting of the Parties to the Agreement on Port State Measures to Prevent, Deter and Eliminate Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated Fishing
    Bali, Indonesia, 8–12 May 2023
    2023
    The Parties reviewed the status of the FAO Agreement on Port State Measures (“the Agreement” or PSMA) and recalled the decisions of the Third Meeting of the Parties. Progress and challenges in the implementation of the Agreement by Parties were discussed and the important role of regional fisheries bodies (RFBs), in particular regional fisheries management organizations (RFMOs), in supporting the implementation of the Agreement was highlighted. The Parties agreed on the operationalization of the Global Information Exchange System by the end of 2023 and adopted the Terms of Reference for the Technical Working Group on Information Exchange. The Parties emphasized that assistance to developing States Parties is critical for the effective implementation of the Agreement, and reiterated the need to make the multilateral-partner PSMA Part 6 Trust Fund administered by FAO operational. The Parties adopted A Strategy to Improve the Effectiveness of the Agreement on Port State Measures to Prevent, Deter and Eliminate Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated Fishing (the “Bali Strategy”). The Parties also agreed that the Terms of Reference of the PSMA Strategy ad hoc Working Group be modified to include the task of monitoring the effective implementation of the Agreement. The amended questionnaire for the Parties for the review and assessment of the effectiveness of the PSMA, together with the new questionnaire for RFBs and other international organizations, were adopted. The programme of work was discussed and the Parties agreed on a schedule of PSMA meetings.
