1This Convention entered into force on 21 December 1975. It subsequently entered into force for each State four months after the date of deposit of that State’s instrument, except in cases of notifications of succession, where the entry into force occurred on the date on which the State assumed responsibility for conducting its international relations. All the States, with the exception of those marked with two asterisks, are also parties to the Convention as amended by the 1982 Protocol. * The States marked with an asterisk have accepted the amendments to Articles 6 and 7 of the Convention adopted by the Extraordinary Conference of the Contracting Parties (Regina, Canada, 1987). These amendments entered into force on 1 May 1994. ** The States marked with two asterisks are parties to the 1971 Convention alone.
