Welcome to the ASCOBANS Advisory Committee Workspace

The ASCOBANS Advisory Committee Workspace (AC Workspace) is the electronic, web-based communication space and working area for the ASCOBANS Advisory Committee (AC). Its aim is to provide a central platform for online collaboration and to support the work and the communication of the Advisory Committee between meetings. The platform consists of a public and a restricted area, the latter being accessible only to the current members and observers of the ASCOBANS Advisory Committee. It includes the following sections:

WORKING GROUPS - An area where the Advisory Committee does its technical work during the intersessional period on priority topics as instructed by the previous Meeting of the Parties and the Agreement’s official documents. 

MEMBERS - This area contains the contact list for all AC members and observers and their individual profiles. 

RESOURCES - This area contains resource documents, such as a user manual, the Agreement text, relevant resolutions, as well as the contact list for the ASCOBANS Secretariat staff and their individual profiles. 

DISCUSSION - A forum area where the Advisory Committee discusses all other matters which are not covered by the existing groups.

WIKI - This is where text documents can be worked on jointly with track change and automatic reminder functionalities.
