The Executive Committee decided:
(a) To note the report on the status/prospects of Article 5 countries in achieving compliance with the initial and intermediate control measures of the Montreal Protocol as contained in documents UNEP/OzL.Pro/ExCom/43/6/Rev.1 and Corr.1, which included data on the status of implementation of ongoing projects in Part II and the implementation of country programmes in Part III;
(b) To urge bilateral and implementing agencies, as well as the relevant Article 5 countries, to adhere to the timely implementation of the 2004 business plans;
(c) To request bilateral and implementing agencies, in consultation with the Secretariat, to include phase-out activities and UNEP Compliance Assistance Programme activities in their 2005–2007 business plans, as an immediate priority, for unfunded eligible consumption for countries in non-compliance or at risk of non-compliance with specific Montreal Protocol control measures for the years 2005 and 2007;
(d) To request the Secretariat, in cooperation with the Ozone Secretariat and the bilateral and implementing agencies, to provide for inclusion in its ensuing reports on the status/prospects of Article 5 countries information and views from the Article 5 countries found to be in non-compliance and/or at risk of non compliance on the nature of the impediments to their achieving compliance with the control measures of the Montreal Protocol, in particular with regard to low-volume-consuming countries, and to report thereon to the 44th Meeting of the Executive Committee; and
(e) To note the expectation that further actions might be necessary in the future to enhance the capacity of the implementing agencies to better support the efforts of countries that were or might soon be in non-compliance.
