"The adoption of decision III/1 by a consensus of the Parties in 1995, calling for an amendment to the Convention banning the export of hazardous wastes from OECD/EU countries and Liechtenstein (proposed Annex VII), and its subsequent implementation by many countries has led to numerous national prohibitions, even while it is not as yet in global force as an amendment to the Convention. These national bans must be respected by all Parties under the rules of the Convention."
