THE EUROPEAN Community (EC) has decided to seek membership to the International Whaling Commission (IWC). At present, the EC is a member only of the UN Food and Agriculture Organisation though seven EC nations are individual members of the IWC. In the wake of this decision, the EC has informed Norway that its current status of associate member may not be converted to full EC membership if it does not drop its plans to resume commercial whaling next spring.
