Abstract

Objectives: To protect the ozone layer by taking precautionary measures to control global emissions of substances that deplete it.

Summary of provisions: The Parties agree to control the annual consumption and production of substances named in annex A at the 1986 annual level. Developing countries consuming less than 0.3 kg per capita of the controlled substances, on the entry into force of the Protocol for them, may delay compliance with paragraphs 2, 3 and 4 of article 2 of the Protocol by ten years, provided in that period they do not exceed 0.3 kg per capita (arts. 2 and 5). A year after the entry of the Protocol into force Parties may not import the substances from a non-party to the Protocol. After January 1993 developing countries may not export such substances to a non-party (arts. 4 and 5). The Protocol also provides for measures of exchange of technology and information, calculation of control levels and assessment and review of the progress achieved.
