Decision XXIV/13: Data and information provided by the parties in accordance with Article 7 of the Montreal Protocol

Noting with appreciation that 194 parties of the 196 that should have reported data for 2011 have done so, and that 99 of those parties reported their data by 30 June 2012 in accordance with decision XV/15,

Noting further that 173 of those parties reported their data by 30 September 2012 as required under Article 7 of the Montreal Protocol,

Noting with concern, however, that the following parties have not reported 2011 data: Mali, and Sao Tome and Principe,

Noting that their failure to report their 2011 data in accordance with Article 7 places those parties in non-compliance with their data‑reporting obligations under the Montreal Protocol until such time as the Secretariat receives their outstanding data,

Noting also that a lack of timely data reporting by parties impedes effective monitoring and assessment of parties’ compliance with their obligations under the Montreal Protocol,

Noting further that reporting by 30 June each year greatly facilitates the work of the Executive Committee of the Multilateral Fund for the Implementation of the Montreal Protocol in assisting parties operating under paragraph 1 of Article 5 of the Protocol to comply with the Protocol’s control measures,

  1. To urge the parties listed in the present decision, where appropriate, to work closely with the implementing agencies to report the required data to the Secretariat as a matter of urgency;
  2. To request the Implementation Committee to review the situation of those parties at its fiftieth meeting;
  3. To encourage parties to continue to report consumption and production data as soon as figures are available, and preferably by 30 June each year, as agreed in decision XV/15;
