Compliance

Pursuant to Article 17 of the Rotterdam Convention, the Conference of the Parties is required to develop and approve procedures and institutional mechanisms for determining non-compliance with the provisions of the Prior Inform Consent (PIC) of the Convention and for the treatment of Parties found to be in non-compliance.

The first meeting of the Conference of the Parties convened an Open-ended Ad-Hoc Working Group on Article 17 that met in 2005. The matter of compliance was again considered during the second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh meetings of the Conference of the Parties. At its eighth meeting, and as reflected in paragraphs 138-149 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 eighth meetings of the Conference of the Parties.
