Chapter IV Management of Vessel Position Reporting
Article 13 
The ALC on board shall be maintained functional at all time, whether 
at sea or in port. 

The ALC on board any fishing vessel shall automatically transmit at 
least one vessel position in every hour.

Fees for the services and communications of the ALC shall be borne by 
distant water fisheries operators. 

Except for the purpose of repair or replacement approved by the competent 
authority, any ALC which has been installed on board and has transmitted 
a vessel position shall not be removed from the fishing vessel.

Article 14 
In case that a fishing vessel needs to stay in a domestic port for three 
days and above; or in a foreign port for dry docking; or in a foreign 
port for seven days and above, its distant water fisheries operator may 
apply to the competent authority with documentary proof for switching 
off the ALC, which may only be switched off after obtaining approval.

In the case of a fishing vessel applying for switching off the ALC during 
its stay in a foreign port for the purposes except for dry docking, a 
photograph showing the berthing of such fishing vessel shall be provided 
weekly. The competent authority may order to switch on the ALC concerned 
in case of failing to provide the photograph in due course.

The period of switching off the ALC as approved in accordance with paragraph 
1 shall not exceed six months for each application. Extension may be applied 
by the distant water fisheries operator concerned in accordance with the 
preceding provision before the period is expired. 

Any fishing vessel shall not leave the port during the period of switching 
off the ALC.

In the event that the ALC onboard is rebooted, the fishing vessel may only 
leave the port after the commissioned professional institution has confirmed 
that such ALC can regularly and normally transmit vessel positions.

Article 15 
Any fishing vessel shall carry at least one spare set of ALC on board. 

In case that the identification number of ALC on board has been changed, 
the distant water fisheries operator shall notify the competent authority 
or the commissioned professional institution in writing.

Article 16 
The ALC is deemed as signal-lost in the event that the commissioned 
professional institution has not received positions automatically 
transmitted by the ALC twice consecutively. In the event that the ALC 
is signal-lost for three consecutive days, it is deemed as malfunction.

The malfunctioning ALC shall be repaired no later than 30 days.

In the event that the ALC on board is signal-lost or mal-functional, 
the distant water fisheries operator or the captain shall immediately 
send information related to vessel positions by facsimile to the 
commissioned professional institution. The vessel positions shall be 
recorded by automatic recording satellite navigator for perusal in later 
days.

The transmit of vessel positions as referred to in the preceding paragraph 
shall be hourly for any fishing vessel.

In the event that the ALC on board is mal-functional, the competent 
authority shall be notified of using the spare set. In case that the spare 
set is also mal-functional, the spare set from other fishing vessel may be 
deployed after obtaining the competent authority’s approval.

Article 17 
In the event that the ALC onboard is deemed as signal-lost for an 
accumulative period of five days and above during one fishing trip, the 
competent authority may order such fishing vessel to stop fishing 
immediately and directly navigate to a designated port within the required 
timeframe for repair and inspection(s) conducted by personnel dispatched by 
the competent authority, and such vessel shall not leave the port until the 
commissioned professional institution has confirmed that such ALC can 
regularly and normally transmit vessel positions.

Any expense incurred from port return, port entry and confirmation of 
position transmitting as referred to in the preceding paragraph shall be 
borne by the distant water fisheries operator.

Article 17-1
For any fishing vessel that is not within the water under the national 
jurisdiction of the Republic of China and without a valid distant water 
fisheries permit, it shall still maintain its ALC operational year-round, 
and Article 13 to 17 shall apply to such vessel.

Chapter V Logbooks and Catch Reports
Article 18

captain shall daily report catch data through the E-logbook system 
designated by the competent authority, and shall also fill in the logbooks 
designated by the competent authority by fishery types. Catch reports shall 
be filled in completely and accurately, and where the catch amount is zero, 
catch reports shall be filled in as well.

In case that there is any discrepancy between any datum recorded in the 
E-logbook system and the logbook, the datum recorded in the E-logbook 
system shall prevail. 

Article 19 
In case that the E-logbook system fails to report catch data on the day, the 
distant water fisheries operator or the captain shall transmit catch data via 
facsimile to the competent authority or the commissioned professional 
institution next day. Such catch data shall be signed by the distant water 
fisheries operator or the captain.

In the event that the E-logbook system fails to report catch data for three 
consecutive days, it is deemed as mal-function. The malfunctioning E-logbook 
system shall be repaired no later than 30 days.

In the event that the E-logbook system onboard is deemed as mal-functional for 
an accumulative period of 15 days and above during one fishing trip, the 
competent authority may order such fishing vessel to stop fishing immediately 
and directly navigate to a designated port within the required timeframe for 
repair and inspection(s) conducted by the personnel dispatched by the competent 
authority, and the vessel shall not leave the port until the commissioned 
professional institution has confirmed that such E-logbook system can normally 
transmit data.

Any expense incurred from port return, port entry and confirmation of the 
E-logbook system as referred to in the preceding paragraph shall be borne by 
the distant water fisheries operator.

Article 20 
Any salmon, trout, sea turtle, seabird, whale shark, cetacean, penguin or

amended, unless there is apparent error with the content and the competent 
authority has approved.

Article 24
The discrepancy between the catch amount recorded in the E-logbook during one 
fishing trip of any squid jigging fishing vessel and the actual landing amount 
shall not exceed 20% of the actual landing amount.

In the event that the discrepancy between the catch amount recorded in the 
E-logbook and the actual landing amount exceeds 50% of the actual landing 
amount, it shall be defined as “seriously misreporting” as referred to in
