* Austria and Luxembourg have signed the 1963 Brussels Supplementary Convention (BSC) as well as the 1964 Additional Protocol to amend the BSC and the 1982 Protocol to amend the BSC. Neither country has ratified any of these instruments.

** Switzerland has signed the 1963 Brussels Supplementary Convention (BSC), the 1964 Additional Protocol to amend the BSC and the 1982 and 2004 Protocols to amend the BSC. On 11 March 2009, Switzerland deposited its instrument of ratification of the 1963 BSC as amended by the 1964, 1982 and 2004 amending Protocols. As this ratification is effective only with respect to the 1963 BSC as amended by all 3 Protocols, entry into force for Switzerland of the Brussels Supplementary Convention as so amended will only take place once the 2004 Protocol to amend the BSC has itself entered into force.

*** On 17 December 2021, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal, Slovenia, Sweden and the United Kingdom deposited their instruments of ratification, acceptance or approval in accordance with Article 21 of the Brussels Supplementary Convention and requested that the deposit be registered on 1 January 2022.
