Appendix C — Minor treaty actions

Minor treaty actions are identifiably minor treaties, generally technical amendments to existing treaties, which do not impact significantly on the national interest. Minor treaty actions are tabled with a one-page explanatory statement. The Joint Standing Committee on Treaties has the discretion to formally inquire into these treaty actions or indicate its acceptance of them without a formal inquiry and report.

The following minor treaty actions were considered by the Committee on the date indicated. In each case the Committee determined not to hold a formal inquiry and agreed that binding treaty action may be taken.
