   *  Where a range of ODPs is indicated, the highest value in that
range shall be used for the purposes of the Protocol. The ODPs listed
as a single value have been determined from calculations based on
laboratory measurements.  Those listed as a range are based on
estimates and are less certain.  The range pertains to an isomeric
group.  The upper value is the estimate of the ODP of the isomer with
the highest ODP, and the lower value is the estimate of the ODP of the
isomer with the lowest ODP.

   **  Identifies the most commercially viable substances with ODP values
listed against them to be used for the purposes of the Protocol.

            ARTICLE 2:  RELATIONSHIP TO THE 1990 AMENDMENT

   No State or regional economic integration organization may deposit
an instrument of ratification, acceptance, approval or accession to

                   ARTICLE 3:  ENTRY INTO FORCE

1. This Amendment shall enter into force on 1 January 1994, provided
that at least twenty instruments of ratification, acceptance or
approval of the Amendment have been deposited by States or regional
economic integration organizations that are Parties to the Montreal
Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer.  In the event
that this condition has not been fulfilled by that date, the Amendment
shall enter into force on the ninetieth day following the date on
which it has been fulfilled.

2. For the purposes of paragraph 1, any such instrument deposited by
a regional economic integration organization shall not be counted as
additional to those deposited by member States of such organization.

3. After the entry into force of this Amendment, as provided under
paragraph 1, it shall enter into force for any other Party to the
Protocol on the ninetieth day following the date of deposit of its
instrument of ratification, acceptance or approval.
