The Sixteenth Meeting of the Parties decided in Dec. XVI/32:

  1. To note with appreciation that 81 Parties to the Montreal Amendment to the Montreal Protocol have established import and export licensing systems, as required under the terms of the Amendment;
  2. To note also with appreciation that 42 Parties to the Montreal Protocol that have not yet ratified the Montreal Amendment have also established import and export licensing systems;
  3. To recognize that licensing systems bring the following benefits: monitoring of imports and exports of ozone-depleting substances; prevention of illegal trade; and enabling data collection;
  4. To urge all the remaining 39 Parties to the Montreal Amendment to provide information to the Secretariat on the establishment of import and export licensing systems, and for those that have not yet established such systems to do so as a matter of urgency;
  5. To encourage all the remaining Parties to the Montreal Protocol that have not yet ratified the Montreal Amendment to ratify it and to establish import and export licensing systems if they have not yet done so;
  6. To urge all Parties that already operate licensing systems to ensure that they are implemented and enforced effectively;
  7. To review periodically the status of the establishment of licensing systems by all Parties to the Montreal Protocol, as called for in Article 4B of the Protocol.
