Observer Scheme

The NAFO Observer Scheme is outlined in Chapter V of the NAFO Conservation and Enforcement Measures and requires vessels to carry an observer on board when operating in the NAFO Regulatory Area. 

The Flag State Contracting Party shall submit the observer report (as set out in Annex II.M of the NAFO CEM) in electronic format, to be forwarded to the Executive Secretary within 30 days following the arrival of the vessel in port (Article 30.10.b).
