Chapter Summary

Article 81 concerns the signature of the Convention. The Convention shall be open for signature by all States Members of the United Nations or of any of the specialised agencies or of the International Atomic Energy Agency or parties to the Statute of the International Court of Justice, and by any other State invited by the General Assembly of the United Nations to become a party to the Convention. The Convention was open for signature until 30 November 1969, at the Federal Ministry for Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Austria, and subsequently, until 30 April 1970, at United Nations Headquarters, New York. There was no great difference between the "all States-formula" and the "Vienna-formula" since the latter envisaged the possibility of the General Assembly inviting any other States to participate in the Convention.
