EIA/IC/S/1 Ukraine

Information on matters considered by the Committee

Submission by Romania having concerns about Ukraine’s compliance with its obligations under the Convention (EIA/IC/S/1)

Initial submission on 26 May 2004 (Romania, Ukraine)

Follow-up submission on 23 January 2007 (Romania, Ukraine)

Initial submission on 26 May 2004 (Romania, Ukraine) (EIA/IC/S/1)

Submission by Romania having concerns about Ukraine’s compliance with its obligations under the Convention with respect to the Danube-Black Sea Deep-Water Navigation Canal in the Ukrainian Sector of the Danube Delta (the ‘Bystroe Canal Project’).

On 19 August 2004 Romania requested the establishment of an inquiry commission under Article 3, paragraph 7, of the Convention, with respect to the same project. At its sixth meeting (3-5 November 2004), the Implementation Committee noted that, because of paragraph 15 of its structure and functions (described in the appendix to decision III/2, ECE/MP.EIA/6), it was not in a position to consider this submission (MP.EIA/WG.1/2005/3, para. 14).

The inquiry commission completed its work on 10 July 2006 and handed over its opinion on the environmental impact of the Bystroe Canal Project to the Ambassadors of Romania and Ukraine and to the Executive Secretary of the UNECE (the inquiry commission's report).

At its eleventh meeting (13-14 February 2007), the Implementation Committee agreed that a second submission by Romania (dated 23 January 2007) superseded Romania’s first submission, which was considered closed (ECE/MP.EIA/WG.1/2007/4, para. 23).
