Decision XV/14: Data and information provided by the Parties in accordance with Article 7 of the Montreal Protocol
The Fifteenth Meeting of the Parties decided in Dec. XV/14:
- To note that the implementation of the Protocol by those Parties that have reported data is satisfactory;
- To note with appreciation that 160 Parties out of the 183 that should have reported data for 2002 have now done so, but that 23 have still not reported to date;
- To note also that lack of timely data reporting by Parties impedes effective monitoring and assessment of Parties’ compliance with their obligations under the Montreal Protocol;
- To urge Parties strongly to report consumption and production data as soon as the figures are available, rather than waiting until the final deadline of 30 September every year.
