Reinforcing Science Supporting Fishery Management Standards for Best Available Science Implementation of OMB’s Peer Review Bulletin Separation between Science & Management Marine Fisheries Advisory Committee June 7-10, 2005 Washington DC

Slide 2

National Standard 2 to Magnuson-Stevens: “ Conservation and administration measures might be based upon the best exploratory data accessible .” How would we focus and guarantee the science we utilize is the best ? What do we do when there are perceived crevices in the science that is accessible ?

Slide 3

Importance of National Standard 2 attests the part of science as the premise for administration choice making has brought about an arrangement of methodology and direction for selecting “best” from various potential science choices (vary locally) stipulates that the absence of flawless science won\'t be utilized to postpone usage of obliged measures, when shown by the dominance of accessible data suggests duty to enhancing science utilized as a part of choice making

Slide 4

National Research Council Study (NRC 2004) How ought to adherence to NS-2 be Measured? How and when would it be advisable for it to be utilized? Should NS-2 be utilized to reject lacking information or would it be advisable for it to be positioned and connected in connection to pertinence & meticulousness? Workshop & a few studies suggestions & direction

Slide 13

Peer Review Standards: Two Levels Standards for compelling exploratory data Standards for exceptionally powerful logical appraisals incorporate those above, in addition to a few others

Slide 14

Peer Review Standards: Influential Scientific Information Selection of analysts Expertise and equalization Conflicts of premium Independence Choice of associate survey instrument Transparency Management of associate survey procedure and commentator determination

Slide 15

Peer Review Standards: Highly Influential Scientific Assessments All principles for persuasive experimental data, in addition to Selection of analysts Expertise and parity Conflicts Independence Rotation Information access Opportunity for open cooperation Transparency Management of companion audit procedure and analyst choice

Slide 16

Peer Review Standards: Alternative Procedures Agency may: depend on the key discoveries, decisions and suggestions of a report created by the National Academy of Sciences; commission the National Academy of Sciences to associate survey an agency’s draft exploratory data; or utilize an option logical method or procedure, particularly affirmed by the Administrator of OIRA in interview with the Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP), that guarantees the agency’s investigative data fulfills material data quality measures

Slide 17

NOAA Requirements Peer Review Agenda Peer Review Plans Public Comment Annual Reports Certification in the Administrative Record Populate DOC site.:

Slide 18

Important Dates Bulletin applies to data scattered on or after June 16, 2005 Except for data for which the office has effectively given a draft report and a related charge to associate commentators Section V companion audit arranging prerequisites for very persuasive logical evaluations apply as of June 16, 2005 Section V companion audit arranging necessities for compelling investigative data apply as of December 16, 2005 Annual Reports - December 15 of every year Peer Review Agenda on DOC site – by June 16, 2005
