The statement must include information on CCM’s implementation of the requirements for its PS operators of vessels on the high seas to submit a report to the ED within 48-hours after any discard.

b. describes how CCM is monitoring and ensuring that its flagged PS vessels are following the requirements for catch retention when operating in EEZs and the high seas and are submitting reports to the ED when on the high seas and where required, and how CCM responds to potential infringements or instances of non-compliance with this requirement.
