Describe the results/achievements of the actions taken: 
Operative 1 – EICAT Union wide consultation & data integration.
IUCN Secretariat and SSC ISSG jointly ran a workshop to edit the EICAT proposed standard in response to comments received through the 1st IUCN-wide consultation (held in 2017). Following this, a second version of the EICAT propsed standard (and additional Guidelines for their application) was published. In August 2019 a second Union-wide consultation was run to solicit feedback on the second version of the EICAT standard. The consultation, using an online survey, went to all IUCN members, commissions and secretariat staff and ran for 5 weeks ending in September. Additional edits have been made to the EICAT standard and a version 3 will be submitted to the IUCN Editorial Board in early 2020, to be submitted to IUCN Council (Operative 2).

Operative 3 – Fostering adoption of EICAT.
A number of EICAT training workshops have been run across Europe, including as part of the EU Life INVASAqua project for the Iberian Peninsular. Additional EICAT assessments have also been undertaken by members of the IUCN EICAT Authority.
What challenges/obstacles have been encountered in the implementation of this Resolution and how were they overcome : 
Funding to develop the IT infrastructure to support the data management and web-interface for EICAT (as part of the IUCN ISSG Global Invasive Species Database).
Briefly describe what future actions are needed for the implementation of this Resolution: 
Once the EICAT standard has been through the IUCN Editorial board, it will be submitted to IUCN Council in 2020 (hopefully before IUCN Congress).
