Implementation of the Cartagena Protocol in Switzerland

According to Article 33 of the Cartagena Protocol each party shall monitor the implementation of its obligations under the Protocol, and shall report on measures that it has taken to implement the Protocol.

It was agreed that the Parties submit an interim report two years after the Protocol has come into force and report on a general frequency of every four years. Reports are written in a standardised form and shall be submitted twelve months prior to the meeting of the conference of the parties that will consider all national reports.
