Amended Convention - REPLACE DOC. and cover

On 28 September 2007, after a two-year process, NAFO adopted the Amendment to the Convention on Future Multilateral Cooperation in the Northwest Atlantic Fisheries (GC Doc. 07/04). This constituted the first formal step towards a reformed Convention for NAFO. The adopted text now has to be ratified by at least three-fourths of the NAFO Contracting Parties to become legally binding. The complete process is described in the current NAFO Convention, Article XXI (see below). In 2016 it was reported at the Annual Meeting: To-date, seven Contracting Parties have ratified the amended Convention, namely, Canada, Cuba, Denmark (in respect of Faroe Islands and Greenland), European Union, Iceland, Norway and Russian Federation. Other Contracting Parties updated the status of their ratification process. Contracting Parties were encouraged to continue their efforts to ratify the amended Convention.
