This schema is to be used in order to create an XML file representing a dataset for data submission. The dataset is centred around the vessels' identification as well as the event being reported. This ensures that the schema is valid both in the case that the entire fleet situation is being reported, as well as in the case that only updates to the previous submission are being sent.
3]  CSV DATA EXCHANGE FORMAT

  (download the file)

The present document aims to provide Members with a Comma-Separated Values data exchange format for them to satisfy Recommendation GFCM/33/2009/5 and submit data to the GFCM Regional Fleet Register whilst implementing the directions provided in Resolution GFCM 35/2011/1 on the submission of combined data on fishing vessels.

This format is intended to work as a supplementary medium in addition to the current XML Schema for those members having National Systems with inbuilt CSV data export capabilities which could therefore leverage on present data transmission architectures.

The resulting dataset is centred around the vessels' identification as well as the event being reported. This ensures that the information is valid both in the case that the entire fleet situation is being reported, as well as in the case that only updates to the previous submission are being sent.

It is the responsibility of GFCM Members to ensure that updates to the fleet are communicated to the GFCM Secretariat regularly, to allow for effective management of the capacity and activity of fishing fleets at regional level.

Datasets being submitted should include only the last event for each vessel AND any other events occurring since the previous submission.

This version is in line with the current structure of the GFCM Regional Fleet Register. It is subject to be modified in accordance with changes which may be introduced by the GFCM from time to time.
