Decision XXII/17: Ratification of the Copenhagen, Montreal and Beijing amendments to the Montreal Protocol by Kazakhstan

  1. To note with concern that Kazakhstan is the only party not operating under paragraph 1 of Article 5 of the Montreal Protocol that has not ratified the Copenhagen Amendment to the Protocol;
  2. Mindful that this situation prevents Kazakhstan from trading in ozone-depleting substances, and particularly in hydrochlorofluorocarbons, with parties to the Protocol;
  3. To urge Kazakhstan to ratify, approve or accede to all amendments to the Montreal Protocol so that it can trade in all ozone-depleting substances with parties to those amendments;
