Committee on Hunting MethodsThe Rules of Procedure govern the Committee's functions.
The Committee has organised four Workshops; Nuuk in 1999, Sandefjord in 2001 and Copenhagen in 2004, and Copenhagen in November 2006. Furthermore the Committee has convened two Expert Group meetings; one on Best Practices in Sealing in February 2009 and one on Assessment of Whale Killing Data in February 2010. The most recent, 15-17 November 2011 in Copenhagen, Denmark, is a third Expert Group meeting to Assess the Hunting Methods for Small Cetaceans.
As a follow up of recommendations from the workshops, members of the committee conducted shooting trials on heads of dead pilot whales and developed guidelines to test the efficiency of rifle ammunition used for hunting and euthanasia of small whales.
The currently (2013) elected Chair of the Committee is Eyþór Björnsson (Iceland) and the vice-Chair is Nette Levermann (Greenland).
