The Representatives,

Recalling the requirements under Article 8 of the Protocol on Environmental Protection to the Antarctic Treaty (“the Protocol”) and its Annex I regarding environmental impact assessments for proposed activities in the Antarctic Treaty area;
Recognising that Parties should already have in place national procedures for implementation of the Protocol in accordance with Article 1 of Annex I thereof;
Noting that under Resolution 1 (1999) the Antarctic Treaty Consultative Meeting (“ATCM”) adopted Guidelines for Environmental Impact Assessment in Antarctica (“Guidelines”);
Noting also that under Resolution 4 (2005) the ATCM adopted revised Guidelines for Environmental Impact Assessment in Antarctica;
Noting that the Committee for Environmental Protection has endorsed revised Guidelines;
Desiring to update the Guidelines to reflect current best practice in the revised environmental impact assessment of proposed activities in Antarctica;

Recommend that:

1. the Guidelines for Environmental Impact Assessment in Antarctica annexed to this Resolution replace the Guidelines annexed to Resolution 4 (2005); and
2. the Secretariat of the Antarctic Treaty post the text of Resolution 4 (2005) on its website in a way that makes clear that it is no longer current.
