SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The
Secretary of Commerce is charged with
the responsibility of discharging the
domestic obligations of the United
States under the International
Convention for the Regulation of
Whaling, 1946. The U.S. Commissioner
has responsibility for the preparation
and negotiation of U.S. positions on
international issues concerning whaling
and for all matters involving the IWC.
He is staffed by the Department of
Commerce and assisted by the
Department of State, the Department of
the Interior, the Marine Mammal
Commission, and by other agencies.
Once the draft agenda for the annual
IWC meeting is completed, it will be
posted on the IWC Secretariat's website
NOAA will hold meetings prior to the
annual IWC meeting to discuss the
tentative U.S. positions for the
upcoming IWC meeting, including the
upcoming report of the Small Working
Group. Because the meeting discusses
U.S. positions, the substance of the
meeting must be kept confidential. Any
U.S. citizen with an identifiable interest
in U.S. whale conservation policy may
participate, but NOAA reserves the
authority to inquire about the interests
of any person who appears at a meeting
and to determine the appropriateness of
that person's participation.
Persons who represent foreign
interests may not attend. These stringent
measures are necessary to protect the
confidentiality of U.S. negotiating
positions and are a necessary basis for
the relatively open process of preparing
for IWC meetings.
The May 27th meeting will be held at
1 p.m. in the Chesapeake Room of the
Crowne Plaza Hotel, 8777 Georgia
Avenue, Silver Spring, MD 20910. The
