Abstract

The Ministerial Meeting of the OSPAR Commission held in Sintra on 22-23 July 1998 was a milestone in the protection of the marine environment of the north-east Atlantic, because it was the first meeting of the OSPAR Commission since the coming into force of the 1992 OSPAR Convention, and because Ministers adopted a number of important measures pursuant to the Convention. This article first analyses the provisions of the OSPAR Convention in the light of contemporary and subsequent international environmental law, and then outlines the measures adopted at Sintra, examining their history, their current significance and anticipated future developments.
