Compliance with the Protocol

Article 30 of the Nagoya Protocol provides that the first meeting of the Conference of the Parties serving as the meeting of the Parties to the Nagoya Protocol (COP-MOP) shall consider and approve cooperative procedures and institutional mechanisms to promote compliance with the provisions of the Protocol and to address cases of non-compliance.

Compliance procedures are a common feature of many multilateral environmental agreements. In general terms, they are intended to support compliance with a treaty and facilitate or assist the Parties to the treaty to implement their obligations. At the first meeting of the Conference of the Parties serving as the meeting of the Parties to the Nagoya Protocol, the Parties adopted compliance procedures and mechanisms and established a Compliance Committee (decision NP-1/4).
