According to Decision BS-I/9 adopted by the First Meeting of the Conference of the Parties serving as the Meeting of the Parties to the Cartagena Protocol (MOP-1), Parties are requested to submit their reports:
(i) On a general frequency of every four years, but in the initial four-year period to submit an interim report two years after the entry into force of the Protocol;
(ii) Twelve months prior to the meeting of the Conference of the Parties serving as the meeting of the Parties to the Protocol that will consider the report;
(iii) In an official language of the United Nations;
(iv) In both hard copy and electronic format.

A draft format, based on obligations on Parties contained in the Protocol, has been developed and adopted at MOP-1.
Parties have also decided that the intervals and formats of the reports should be kept under review, building on the experience of Parties in preparing their reports.
