Declarations, Reservations etc.

On September 26, 2002, the Director-General received a notification of succession from the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, as a successor State of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. Subsequently, on 6 February 2003, the Director-General received a new notification informing him that the name "Federal Republic of Yugoslavia" has been changed to "Serbia and Montenegro". On June 12, 2006, the Director-General received a further notification informing that the Republic of Serbia is continuing the membership of "Serbia and Montenegro" in FAO and all its organs, on the basis of Article 60 of the Constitutional Charter of Serbia and Montenegro, activated by the Declaration of Independence adopted by the National Assembly of Montenegro on June 3, 2006, and that the name "Republic of Serbia" is to be henceforth used instead of the name "Serbia and Montenegro". Consequently, the Republic of Serbia is considered a party to the IPPC as of April 27, 1992, date on which the then Federal Republic of Yugoslavia assumed responsibility for its international relations.
