As the deadline for registration to ECS workshops is getting closer, we 
would just remind all interested that there are still places available 
for the workshop intitled "Developing tools to ensure high quality MMOs 
in the ACCOBAMS area".

The aim is to present and discuss the tools under development to the 
professionals in order to increase certificate efficiency and define 
roles of the different actors and links among them.


Considering the growing numbers of seismic operations and related 
projects in the ACCOBAMS area and their known negative impacts on 
cetaceans, ACCOBAMS is developing a high quality training module to 
train MMO/PAMwithin the Agreementarea (Mediterranean Sea, Black Sea and 
contiguous Atlantic area). This training module is composed of tools and 
a framework for implementation in accordance with current standards 
applied elsewhere in the world. Nevertheless, these tools will need to 
be known and accepted byprofessionals involved in the monitoring of 
noise at sea and its impact on cetaceans (scientific, political, 
industrial, MMO/PAM). Theaim of the proposed workshop will be to present 
and discuss the tools under development with professionals in order to 
promote this certificate and define roles of the different actors and 
links between them. The specific objectives are (1) tofurther develop 
applicable and relevant tools, (2) to identify ways for these tools to 
be accepted by relevant bodies and organizations, and (3) to learn from 
best practiceto reach high quality training standards.

The workshop takes place the *Sunday 13th of March*, *full day* from 
9h30 Am to 5h30 Pm
