Implementation Notifications (ABC)

Developing and LDC Members can request more time and capacity building support to implement the Agreement. To benefit from these flexibilities, they must designate all measures into categories A, B and/or C which have the following implementation timings:

CATEGORY A  = developing Members will implement the measure by 22/02/2017 and LDCs by 22/02/2018

CATEGORY B  = Members will need additional time to implement the measure

CATEGORY C  = Members will need additional time and capacity building support to implement the measure 

Besides the notification of categories A, B and C designations, the TFA sets out different timelines for the notification of indicative and definitive dates for implementation of categories B and C commitments as well as the technical assistance required for the implementation of category C commitments.
