IPHC Media Release 2021-003 Processor Advisory Board Accreditation (2021)
13 January 2021
SEATTLE – Accreditation of Processor Advisory Board membership for 2021
The Processor Advisory Board (PAB) is a subsidiary body of the International Pacific Halibut Commission (IPHC) that represents the commercial Pacific halibut processing industry from Canada and the United States of America. The PAB consists of accredited members from Canada and the USA. PAB Members are companies or associations, including sole-proprietorships, corporations, or partnerships whose direct business is purchasing, processing and selling Pacific halibut caught in Alaska, British Columbia, Washington, Oregon, or California.
The Chairperson (Jesse Keplinger – USA) and Vice-Chairperson (Carl Nordmann – Canada), are calling for all interested companies or associations, including sole-proprietorships, corporations, or partnerships whose direct business is purchasing, processing and selling Pacific halibut caught in Alaska, British Columbia, Washington, Oregon, or California, to complete the online accreditation form as soon as possible in preparation for the upcoming 26th Session of the PAB (PAB026).
This information is being requested given the electronic format of the meeting in 2021 and the need for optimal organisation, coordination, transparency and reporting. The accreditations will assist the Chairperson, Vice-Chairperson and the IPHC Secretariat in managing the meeting, as well as serve as a formal record of membership of the PAB moving forward. Please note that even if you attended the previous PAB meeting, we are requesting you complete the form.
The online accreditation form is accessible via the following link:
Once you have completed the accreditation form, please also register each individual participant via the meeting page registration link. This will give you access to the link to the electronic meeting commencing on 26 January 2021.
At the commencement of the PAB026 on 26 January 2021, the Chairperson and Vice-Chairperson will review the accreditations with all those present.
Should you have any questions regarding PAB representation, please contact the IPHC Secretariat for clarification: Secretariat@iphc.int.
