All tuna RFMOs are making progress in using electronic monitoring (EM) systems to provide on-board vessel monitoring.

RFMOs begin using data received from EM systems for scientific and/or compliance purposes approximately two years after the adoption of EM minimum standards: one year for program implementation, and an additional year for data review and submission. However, for those CPCs currently implementing an EM program, this timeline could be shortened to one year.
