The Convention for the conservation of the North-East Atlantic marine area ("OSPAR convention") was opened for signature at the ministerial meeting of the Oslo and Paris commissions on 22 September 1992 in Paris.

The OSPAR Convention came into force on 25 March 1998. It replaces the Oslo and Paris Conventions, but the decisions, recommendations and other agreements adopted under those conventions continue to be applicable and are legally unalterable, unless terminated by new measures adopted under the 1992 OSPAR Convention.

The OSPAR Convention includes a series of appendices addressing the following topics:

  • Appendix I on the prevention and elimination of pollution from land-based sources;
  • Appendix II on the prevention and elimination of pollution by dumping or incineration;
  • Appendix III on the prevention and elimination of pollution from offshore sources;
  • Appendix IV on the assessment of the quality of the marine environment.
