The branch intends to receive the expert advice during its meeting to conduct a possible hearing (if so requested by the party concerned) as well as deliberate, elaborate and adopt a preliminary finding or a decision not to proceed further. This meeting is scheduled to take place on 11-12 October 2009, in Bangkok, Thailand. The enforcement branch will receive expert advice in accordance with the procedures and mechanisms relating to compliance contained in the annex to decision 27/CMP.1 and the Rules of procedure of the Compliance Committee contained in the annex to decision 4/CMP.2 as amended by decision 4/CMP.4. Both questions of implementation to be addressed relate to compliance with the modalities for the accounting of assigned amounts under Article 7, paragraph 4, of the Kyoto Protocol (decision 13/CMP.1).
