settlement mentioned in this paragraph [International Court of Justice or Arbitration] as compulsory in relation to any Party accepting an obligation concerning one or both these means of dispute settlement." Furthermore, Austria ratified the Amendments to the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer.

A new law implementing the Convention on the International Trade in Endangered Species--which is based on EC Regulation No. 3626/82-- entered into force in 1996 ( Federal Law Gazette 1996/179). Paragraph 8 permits the Minister for Economic Affairs to issue an ordinance in accordance with Art. 15 of EC Regulation No. 3626/82 thereby prescribing stricter measures than EC law. Pursuant to this provision, the Minister for Economic Affairs issued an ordinance ( Federal Law Gazette 1996/248) banning the import of any young seal furs not hunted by Inuits with traditional methods (para. 2).

Work on further protocols to the Convention on the Protection of the Alps continued in 1996. Although negotiations on a protocol on tourism were concluded and an agreement was reached on a protocol on soil protection, no solution was reached on the protocol on traffic (see 5 YbIEL 359 ( 1994) and 6 YbIEL 432 ( 1995)). Negotiations on a protocol on energy began in 1996, the main issue being the question of nuclear energy. In addition, laws and regulations entered into force in 1996 adapting Austrian law to EC law (e.g., concerning waste disposal ( Federal Law Gazette 1996/434)).

(1) New Multilateral Agreements

In 1996, Germany ratified the 1994 International Agreement on Nuclear Safety (see Umwelt 12/ 1996, p. 446; see also Umwelt 4/ 1996, p. 168 for Federal Cabinet decision). In June, the Federal Parliament adopted an act to ratify the 1994 Agreement on the Protection and Sustainable Use of the Danube River ( Act of 3 June 1996, Bundesgesetzblatt ( Federal Gazette) Vol. II No. 25 of 12 June 1996, p. 874). Its primary objective is the establishment of a framework for bilateral and multilateral cooperation for the protection of the Danube, the reduction and control of pollution, and the sustainable use of water resources by the bordering states. On 21 November, a draft act to ratify the Agreement between the Czech Republic, Germany, Poland, and the European Union on the International Commission for the Protection of the Oder River was submitted by the federal government. The objective of cooperation within the Commission is to protect the entire river basin of the Oder against pollution, to protect natural aquatic and littoral ecosystems, and to ensure the supply of safe drinking water.
