  • Acronym: SG-SC

  • Term: 2006-2007
    Appoved at PICES XV (Oct. 2006), (Decision 06/A/6)
  • Chair: Laura Richards (Canada)
Terms of Reference
  1. The Study Group will identify options and propose mechanisms for scientific cooperation between PICES and non-member countries, within the current Convention. The options considered will include a review of the ICES "Affiliate Status" arrangement and how it could be adapted to the needs of PICES. Benefits and drawbacks should be identified for each option in terms of the following:
    • Scientific objectives of PICES;
    • Financial and human resources implications; and
    • Needed changes to the Rules of Procedure and Financial Regulations.
  2. The Study Group will assess the benefits and challenges in terms of the scientific objectives of PICES of expanding the "area concerned", as specified under Article II of the Convention, to the Southern Pacific, and should provide a compilation of all countries' views on such a change to the Convention.
  3. The Study Group should provide its report to Council by August 15, 2007, for consideration at PICES XVI in Victoria.
