Remarks / Description: 1. General This Report is prepared pursuant to Article 5§6 of the law of 7 April 2005 transposing the effects of the Protocol to the Antarctic Treaty relative to the protection of the environment and covers the impact related to the activities undertaken by the Belgian-Dutch Inspection mission to Antarctica end of February 2017. The Inspection mission was permitted on 15 February 2017 by the Federal Minister of Environment and entered into the EIES (Electronic Information Exchange System) database of the ATS (Antarctic Treaty System), compliant with Article VII, 5. (a) of the AT (Antarctic Treaty). 2. TEAM The inspection team was composed of the following observers: • François André : Ministry of Environment • Johan Berte: BELSPO expert general • Jacob Bossaer: BELSPO Expedition Leader and expert Water systems • Karel Moerman: BELSPO expert Systems and electrics and Radio communications • Jochen Tytgat: BELSPO expert IT and Satellite communications • Chris Vanden Bilcke: Ministry of Foreign Affairs, diplomatic contacts and preparations in Cape Town • Dick van der Kroef: ATCM inspector from the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research on behalf of the Kingdom of the Netherlands • René Wagemans: Ministry of Defence 3. MISSION OBJECTIVES The inspection had 2 objectives, as stated in the Terms of Reference: • the inspection of the ‘blue ice’ landing strip at Romnoes, • the visual inspection of the Princess Elisabeth Station. The mission had limited itself to a visual inspection of the landing strip and the station. 3.1. INSPECTION OF ROMNOES Following a presentation of an Information Paper (IP) to the ATCM in 2016 relating to the unlicensed activity of ALCI on Romnoes – blue ice landing strip 60 km North from the Princess Elisabeth Station - Belgium and Norway were commissioned by the ATCM to prepare for the meeting in 2017 an IP on the past activities and the current status at Romnoes. In preparation of this IP, seven of the eight inspection team members carried out an inspection of the Romnoes site. 3.2. INSPECTION OF THE PRINCESS ELISABETH STATION Seven of the eight inspection team members visited the Princess Elisabeth Station in the frame of a formal international BE-NL inspection under Article VII of the ATS and within the terms of the Partnership Agreement signed in 2007 between the science policy and the IPF, as amended by an additional agreement in 2008, pursuant to Article 1: General requirements: compliance with international law - §3. At the request of the Belgian Government the IPF commits itself to provide all information that may be required and can be disclosed to third parties pursuant to the Treaty, in particular under Article III.1 (a), and to allow any visit or investigation in which Article VII of the Treaty foresees. 4. PROGRAMME AND ITINERARY Intercontinental and continental flights were organised via the DROMLAN air network. No search and rescue needed to be organised.
