Compliance

According to Article 17 of the Convention, the Conference of the Parties shall develop and approve procedures and institutional mechanisms for determining non-compliance with the provisions of the Convention and for the treatment of Parties found to be in non-compliance. 

To prepare draft procedures on non-compliance for its consideration, the Conference of Parties established an ad hoc open-ended working group on non-compliance that met in April 2006 and April 2007. Further work on the issue was undertaken by the Conference of the Parties at its third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth meetings. At its eighth meeting, and as reflected in paragraphs 215-222 of the meeting report, the Conference of the Parties decided to defer further consideration of the matter of compliance to its ninth meeting.

The table below sets out comments on outstanding issues submitted by Parties at the invitation of the Bureau during the intersessional period between the seventh and eight meetings of the Conference of the Parties.
