Data Reporting and Tools

Pursuant to Article 7 of the Montreal Protocol, Parties to the Protocol are required to report annually on production and consumption of ozone depleting substances. In addition, various decisions of the Parties request further information and data to be provided to the Secretariat.

This section of the web site attempts to assemble much of the information related to the Parties reporting of data and other information in a usable manner for the Parties as well as the general public.

It should be noted that certain chemical specific data reported by the Parties is considered to be confidential. As a consequence, the data contained in the Secretariat’s data access centre is grouped according to the basket of chemicals covered in each annex.


Under the protocol, the Parties are required to report to the Secretariat various types of information. For some of those reporting requirements, guidelines or reporting forms have been prepared.
