Objective: To strengthen the control procedures under the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer (1987) and extend the coverage of the Protocol to new substances.

Summary of provisions: The Parties agree to amend the Protocol to set out obligations of the Parties to carry out control measures concerning hydrochlorofluorocarbons (phase out of its consumption before 1 January 2030), hydrobromofluorocarbons (phase out of production and consumption before 1 January 1996) and methyl bromide (as of 1 January 1995 freeze production and consumption at 1991 level. The Amendment contains provisions on the prohibition of import from and export to non-Parties with respect to hydrobromofluorocarbons and concerning elaboration of a list of products containing hydrobromofluorocarbons, with a view to control the import of such products from non-Parties.
