Decision XXI/19: Compliance with the Montreal Protocol by the Federated States of Micronesia

  1. That the Federated States of Micronesia reported annual consumption of the controlled substances in Annex A, group I (chlorofluorocarbons), of 0.5 ODP‑tonnes for 2007, which exceeds the Party’s maximum allowable consumption of 0.2 ODP‑tonnes for those controlled substances for that year, and that the Party is therefore in non‑compliance with the control measures for those substances under the Protocol for that year;
  2. To note, however, that in response to the request for an explanation for its excess consumption, the Federated States of Micronesia has reported that it had begun to enforce its licensing system, which took effect in November 2007;
  3. To note further the Federated States of Micronesia’s return to compliance in 2008 and its commitment to ban imports of chlorofluorocarbons from 2009 onward;
  4. To monitor closely the progress of the Party with regard to its implementation of its obligations under the Protocol;
