Multilateral agreements
List of Bilateral and Multilateral Agreements

Procedures to be followed for the communication of multilateral agreements concluded in accordance with Section 1.5.1 of ADR       

 

 

1)

The initiating country contacts the secretariat and informs it of its intention to initiate a multilateral agreement, the draft of which it transmits by fax and by e-mail.

 

2)

The secretariat registers the title of the draft agreement and assigns it a serial number which it communicates immediately to the initiating country.

 

3)

The initiating country includes the serial number in the heading of the draft agreement (e.g. "Multilateral agreement M252") and then proposes it to the other Contracting Parties to ADR.

 

4)

As soon as the initiating country has reached agreement with the parties concerned on the final version of the clauses of the multilateral agreement, it transmits its signed copy to the secretariat in hard copy and electronically and transmits unsigned copies to the other Contracting Parties to ADR.

 

5)

Each signatory country returns its signed copy to the initiating country and transmits a signed copy to the secretariat.

 

6)

As soon as the secretariat receives the copy signed by a second signatory, the agreement is entered in a database which may be consulted on e-mail/Internet.

 

7)

Each Contracting Party which revokes an agreement shall immediately so inform the secretariat.

 

8)

The final clause of a multilateral agreement should be worded as follows:
"This agreement shall be valid until (...)a for the carriage on the territories of those ADR Contracting Parties signatory to this agreement. If it is revoked before then by one of the signatories, it shall remain valid until the above mentioned date only for carriage on the territories of those ADR Contracting Parties signatory to this agreement which have not revoked it. (date ...)b The competent authority for ADR of ... ... (Signature)".

 

9)

Where a signatory country signs a multilateral agreement with reservations regarding its application, these reservations shall be expressly mentioned in the copy which it transmits to the secretariat.
