Text of the Protocol:







1. In the course of adopting the Protocol, the Meeting of the Parties to the Convention made an oral modification to the French version of the Protocol to correct some typographical errors, thereby bringing the text in line with the English and Russian versions. The modifications made to the French version were as follows:
- In annex I on Activities, para. 1(c), the text should refer to '50 mégawatts' and not to '500 mégawatts';
- In annex II on Pollutants, in No. 31 the text in the third column should read 'Chloroalcanes, C10-C13)', and in No. 57, third column, '(TRI)' should be deleted;
- In annex II, the column headings '(colonne 1a)', ''(colonne 1b)', '(colonne 1c)' and '(colonne 3)' should be included in the French version as in the English and Russian versions, and the vertical dividing line between column 1c & column 2 should extend to the top of the table (to make it clear that column 2 is not a sub-column of column 1).
