Communications from the public

In accordance with the Decision1/2, a submission may be brought before the Committee by a Party that concludes that, despite its best endeavours, it is or will be unable to comply fully with its obligations under the Protocol. Such a submission shall be addressed in writing to the joint secretariat and shall explain, in particular, the specific circumstances that the Party considers to be the cause of its non-compliance. The joint secretariat shall transmit the submission to the Committee, which shall consider the matter as soon as practicable.

A submission may be brought before the Committee by one or more Parties that have reservations about another Party's compliance with its obligations under the Protocol. Such a submission shall be addressed in writing to the joint secretariat and supported by corroborating information. The joint secretariat shall, within two weeks of receiving a submission, send a copy of it to the Party whose compliance is at issue. Any reply and supporting information shall be submitted to the joint secretariat and to the Parties involved within three months or such longer period as the circumstances of a particular case may require, but in no case later than six months. The joint secretariat shall transmit the submission and the reply, as well as all corroborating and supporting information, to the Committee, which shall consider the matter as soon as practicable.
