Objective: To amend the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer.
Summary of provisions: Within one year of entry into force of this amendment, each Contracting Party undertakes to ban the import and export of the controlled substance in Annex E from and to any State not Party to the Montreal Protocol (amendment A, article 1). If a Party is unable to comply with its obligation under the Protocol to cease production of that substance for domestic consumption, it undertakes to ban the export of used, recycled and reclaimed quantities of that substance, other than for the purpose of destruction (amendment E.1, article 1). Parties further agree to establish and implement an import and export licensing system for the controlled substances in Annexes A, B, C and E (amendment F.1, article 1). A delay in implementation of this system for substances in Annexes C and E is allowed for Parties operating under paragraph 1, Article 5 of the Protocol (amendment F.2, article 1).
