Penn State International Law Review


This comment reviews the significant international measures taken to study, regulate and curtail problems caused by chlorofluorocarbons in the ozone layer, including the adoption of the "Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer" by twenty-four countries and the European Economic Community in September, 1987. Universal acceptance is proposed in order to solve the major problems of enforcing· regulatory actions, and to foster the development of alternatives to chlorofluorocarbons.
