Transit transboundary movements

The work of the Committee to improve the implementation of and compliance with Article 6 of the Convention on transboundary movement between Parties includes work on paragraph 4 of Article 6 of the Convention on transit transboundary movements.

By its decision BC-14/15, the Conference of the Parties mandated the Committee to

  • Review the information provided by Parties in response to questions 3 (g) and 3 (h) of the reporting format;
  • Finalize guidance on the implementation of paragraph 4 of Article 6 of the Convention set out in document UNEP/CHW.14/INF/26 by inviting and taking into account any additional comments from Parties and observers, including the World Customs Organization, through consultation with the Open ended Working Group and through targeted exchanges with the United Nations Division for Ocean Affairs and the Law of the Sea, for consideration and possible adoption by the Conference of the Parties at its fifteenth meeting.

In a 19 August 2019 Communication, the Secretariat invited Parties and observers to provide comments on the guidance on the implementation of paragraph 4 of Article 6 of the Convention set out in document UNEP/CHW.14/INF/26.

The work on the Committee on the development of guidance on transit transboundary movements is a continuation of work initiated under its 2016-2017 and 2018-2019 work programmes.
