Chapter Summary

The purpose of Article 79 is to indicate the procedure in the event of discovering an error in the treaty so as to correct the offending text. The types of errors are (i) physical error in typing, (ii) a lack of conformity of the original of the treaty with the official records of the diplomatic conference which adopted the treaty and (iii) a lack of concordance between the different authentic texts constituting the original of the treaty. Article 79 involves both signatory States and contracting States in its procedures. Where an error is discovered in a certified copy of a treaty, the depositary shall execute a procès-verbal specifying the rectification and communicate a copy of it to the signatory States and to the contracting States. The rules and procedures enshrined in Article 79 are straightforward, practicable, and generally complete.
