Decision ID: 004067
At their October 2015 sessions, the 1992 Fund Administrative Council and Supplementary Fund Assembly reaffirmed that under the 1992 Fund Convention and Supplementary Fund Protocol, Member States had an obligation to submit oil reports and urged all of them to do so. In particular, those Member States with outstanding oil reports were requested to submit them as soon as possible since the submission of oil reports was a cornerstone of the compensation regime and of crucial importance for the functioning of the IOPC Funds. In addition, the governing bodies requested the Director to continue his efforts to obtain the outstanding reports and urged Member States to cooperate with those efforts. The governing bodies also encouraged more Member States to submit oil reports using the online reporting system.
