Decision XXVI/12: Data and information provided by the parties in accordance with Article 7 of the Montreal Protocol

Noting with appreciation that 196 parties of the 197 that should have reported data for 2013 have done so and that 72 of those parties reported their data by 30 June 2014 in accordance with decision XV/15,

Noting that 158 of those parties reported their data by 30 September 2014 as required under paragraph 3 of Article 7 of the Montreal Protocol,

Noting with concern, however, that the Central African Republic has not reported 2013 data,

Noting that its failure to report its 2013 data in accordance with Article 7 places the party in non-compliance with its data‑reporting obligations under the Montreal Protocol until such time as the Secretariat receives the 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 Central African Republic, 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 the Central African Republic at its fifty-fourth 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;
