1. The EU Council has set out the position to be taken by the EU in the meetings of all of the Regional Fisheries Management Organisations of which the EU is a Member. The positions are set out in a series of regulations, intended to determine the negotiating mandate of the Commission on behalf of the EU. The positions shall, inter alia, be consistent with the objectives and principles pursued by the Union within the common fisheries policy, promote the implementation of an ecosystem-based approach, ensure that measures adopted are consistent with international law, seek consistency and synergy with the EU's bilateral fisheries relations with third countries, and aim to create a level playing field for the Union fleet within the relevant RFMO Area. Before each meeting the Commission is required to provide a written document to the Council setting out the particulars of the proposed position for discussion and subsequent endorsement by the Council. The regulations apply to negotiations in respect of the Inter-American Tropical Tuna Commission (IATTC), the Meeting of the Parties to the Agreement on the International Dolphin Conservation Programme (AIDCP), the South East Atlantic Fisheries Organisation (SEAFO), the Western and Central Pacific Fisheries Commission (WCPFC), the Northwest Atlantic Fisheries Organisation (NAFO), the North Atlantic Salmon Conservation Organization (NASCO), the North-East Atlantic Fisheries Commission (NEAFC), the Convention on the Conservation and Management of Pollock Resources in the Central Bering Sea, the Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR),the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas (ICCAT) and the General Fisheries Commission for the Mediterranean (GFCM).
