In a letter dated 27 June 2016, the Secretariat transmitted to Parties a follow-up letter pertaining to the draft classification of Parties’ compliance performance with the national reporting obligation for 2013, as follows:
- Parties that had transmitted their national report for 2013 by 5 February 2016 were invited to comment on the draft classification by 31 August 2016, and
- Parties that had yet to transmit their national report for 2013 by 5 February 2016 were invited to do so by 31 August 2016.
In the same letter, Parties were invited to submit by 10 September 2016 views on the draft Guidance on insurance, bond and guarantee. Views from the members of the Expert Working Group on Environmentally Sound Management on the draft guidance were also invited by the same deadline.
