collection. National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) has issued 
regulations under authority of the Western and Central Pacific 
Fisheries Convention Implementation Act (WCPFCIA; 16 U.S.C. 6901 et 
seq.) to carry out the obligations of the United States under the 
Convention on the Conservation and Management of Highly Migratory Fish 
Stocks in the Western and Central Pacific Ocean (Convention), including 
implementing the decisions of the Commission for the Conservation and 
Management of Highly Migratory Fish Stocks in the Western and Central 
Pacific Ocean (WCPFC or Commission). The regulations include 
requirements for the owners or operators of U.S. vessels to: (1) Apply 
for and obtain a WCPFC Area Endorsement if the vessel is used for 
fishing for highly migratory species on the high seas in the Convention 
Area (50 CFR 300.212), (2) complete and submit a Foreign Exclusive 
Economic Zone (EEZ) Form if the vessel is used for fishing for highly 
migratory species in the Convention Area in areas under the 
jurisdiction of any nation other than the United States (50 CFR 
300.213), and (3) request and obtain an IMO number if the vessel is 
used for fishing for highly migratory species on the high seas or in 
areas under the jurisdiction of any nation other than the United States 
(50 CFR 300.217(c)). An IMO number is the unique number issued for a 
vessel under the ship identification number scheme established by the 
International Maritime Organization or, for vessels that are not 
strictly subject to that scheme, the unique number issued by the 
administrator of that scheme using the scheme's numbering format, 
sometimes known as a Lloyd's Register number or LR number.
    The application for WCPFC Area Endorsements calls for specified 
information about the vessel and its operator that is not already 
collected via the application for high seas fishing permits issued 
under 50 CFR 300.333. The Foreign EEZ Form calls for specified 
information about the vessel, its owners and operators and any fishing 
authorizations issued by other nations. The information required to 
obtain an IMO number is not submitted to NMFS directly, but to a third 
party and serves to ensure that IMO numbers are issued for certain 
categories of vessels. This information collected under the three 
requirements is used by NOAA, the U.S. Coast Guard, and the Commission 
to monitor the size and composition of the HMS fleets in the Convention 
Area for compliance-related and scientific purposes and to ensure that 
IMO numbers are issued for certain categories of vessels.
