Decision VII/16: Compliance with the Montreal Protocol by Bulgaria

The Seventh Meeting of the Parties decided in Dec. VII/16:

  1. To note that the Implementation Committee took cognizance of the joint statement made by Belarus, Bulgaria, Poland, the Russian Federation and Ukraine at the eleventh meeting of the Open-ended Working Group of the Parties to the Montreal Protocol regarding possible non-fulfilment of their obligations under the Montreal Protocol, as a submission under paragraph 4 of the non-compliance procedure of Article 8 of the Protocol;
  2. To note the consultations of the Implementation Committee with the representative of Bulgaria regarding possible non-fulfilment of that Party’s obligations under the Montreal Protocol;
  3. To note that Bulgaria was in compliance with its obligations under the Montreal Protocol in 1995 and that there is a possibility of non-compliance in 1996 so that the Implementation Committee might have to revert to that question that year.
