success of multilateral environmental agreements including
the Montreal Protocol is based on Parties reporting data
accurately and on time.
Reliable and timely data from all Parties
on the production and consumption of ozone depleting substances
permit decision-makers at the national and international levels
to formulate appropriate control measures, devise realistic phase-out
strategies, and provide the necessary financial and technical assistance
required by developing countries.
Data reporting is also crucial for all
Parties, not only for fulfilling their external obligations under
the Protocol, but also internally for verifying their position vis-à-vis
their national strategies to phase out ozone depleting substances.
It should therefore be viewed as a useful tool, not simply as a

Looking for help
with Data Reporting?
addition to the information resources above, UNEP provides
personalised, direct assistance to National Ozone Units (NOUs)
to help them comply with reporting data required under Article
7 of the Montreal Protocol and Country Programmes.
UNEP's Compliance Assistance Programme
(CAP) staff regularly consult NOUs to identify data reporting
problems and provide appropriate solutions. Developing countries
in actual or potential non-compliance according to their reported
Article 7 data are the priority.
The expected result is that all client
countries report Article 7 data by the established deadlines
and the quality of reported data is improved.
If you are an Ozone Officer and need
data reporting assistance, please contact the CAP
Regional Network Coordinator in your region or other Implementing
