Abstract

Objectives: To protect human health and the environment against adverse effects resulting from modifications of the ozone layer.

Summary or provisions: Parties agree to cooperate in research concerning substances and processes that modify the ozone layer on human health and environmental effects of such modifications, on alternative substances and technologies and in the systematic observation of the State of the ozone layer (arts. 2 and 3). Parties undertake to cooperate in controlling activities that cause adverse effects through modification of the ozone layer, and, particularly, in the development of protocols for such purposes (arts. 2 and 4). Parties are to exchange scientific, technical, socio-economic, commercial and legal information relevant to the Convention, and cooperate in the development and transfer of technology and knowledge (art. 4). The Convention has two annexes: setting forth important issues for scientific research on and systematic observation of the ozone layer; and describing the kinds of information to be collected and shared under its terms.
