Article 24 – Annexes
24.2 The provisions of Article 23 regarding amendments to this Treaty shall apply to the amendment of annexes.
Like many international agreements, the Treaty contains annexes. This Article clarifies the relationship between the Treaty and its annexes (Article 24.1). It also confirms a traditional rule in treaty making that annexes form an integral part of the Treaty.
It is anticipated that changes will eventually be made to the annexes, and Article 24.2 provides for the procedure for modifying them. Again, the Annexes, and in particular Annex I, were considered so important to the balance of the Treaty, that consensus was insisted upon.
