Chapter Summary

The OSPAR Commission is the means by which the countries of the North-East Atlantic cooperate in protecting their seas. This chapter sets out to cover five aspects of the question of how the OSPAR Commission ensures compliance with the obligations and commitments that the Contracting Parties enter into under the OSPAR Convention for the Protection of the Marine Environment of the North-East Atlantic. The first two aspects are: (1) to set the scene about the origins of the OSPAR Convention's predecessors, and the approach to compliance that was initially adopted; and (2) to describe the way in which practice on compliance developed in the first twenty years of operating the OSPAR system. The remaining aspects are: (3) to explain the changes that were made in 1992; (4) to describe the way in which those changes have been implemented; and (5) to set out what has been achieved as a result.
