Let $(X_{i:n}, Y_{[i:n]}), 1 \leq i \leq r < n,$ be the first $r$ order statistics and their concomitants of a random sample from the absolutely continuous Block-Basu bivariate exponential distribution with pdf having the form ${\lambda_1 \lambda (\lambda_2+\lambda_{12})}{(\lambda_1+\lambda_2)^{-1}} e^{-\lambda_1 x - (\lambda_2+\lambda_{12})y}$ when $0 \leq x < y$ and ${\lambda_2 \lambda (\lambda_1+\lambda_{12})}{(\lambda_1+\lambda_2)^{-1}} e^{-\lambda_2 y - (\lambda_1+\lambda_{12})x}$ when $0 \leq y < x$. We find the Fisher Information (FI) matrix in our type II right censored sample and examine the growth pattern of the FI relative to the total FI on $\lambda_1, \lambda_2$, {and} $\lambda_{12}$ as $r/n$ changes in (0,1) for finite and infinite sample sizes. We describe its implications on the design of censored trials. We also consider left and double censoring schemes.
