PSMA GIESGlobal Information Exchange System

Agreement on Port State Measures


Welcome to the Global Information Exchange System (GIES) as foreseen under Article 16(2) of the 2009 FAO Agreement on Port State Measures to Prevent, Deter and Eliminate Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated Fishing (PSMA).

The fourth Meeting of the Parties to the PSMA agreed on having the GIES operational by the end of 2023, noting its initial use as a voluntary system until decided otherwise. Access to the system is limited to the Parties of the PSMA.

At the request of Parties, a test environment was made available to allow users to safely trial the system without exchanging information with other States or relevant stakeholders. This environment is accessible to all States and regional fishery bodies.
