Technical implementation issues
Directed to the Standing Committee
The Standing Committee shall:
a) identify, in conjunction with the Animals and Plants Committees, the typical categories of technical implementation issues (i.e. operational / administrative / management issues, not matters of a Party's compliance with the Convention) that have proved to be difficult to address under existing committee structures;
b) establish and implement a process for the Standing Committee to act as a clearing house to direct technical implementation issues to the appropriate body (permanent committees, Secretariat, Party or, when appropriate, outside experts) so that issues can be handled in a flexible, timely and accountable manner; and
c) report at the 13th meeting of the Conference of the Parties on the categories of technical implementation issues identified by the permanent committees, development of a process for the Standing Committee to act as clearing house, and recommendations.
Directed to the Animals and Plants Committees
The Animals and Plants Committees shall:
a) continue to work on technical implementation issues of a primarily scientific nature;
b) develop recommendations on how the Committees could assist the Standing Committee in providing advice on technical implementation issues; and
c) report to the Standing Committee by its 50th meeting.
