The Montreal Protocol, which is based on the Vienna Ozone Convention, is known as one of the most successful environmental treaties in the history of international law. These treaties, together with non-binding instruments adopted by the MOP/COP, have gradually formed the so-called 'ozone régime', having strong impact on international legal order. The first edition of Professor Yoshida's monograph, The International Legal Régime for the Protection of the Stratosphere Ozone Layer, has been the most comprehensive contemporary study of the international ozone régime (Professor Alan Boyle, University of Edinburgh). In the second revised edition, he closely analyses the developments of the ozone régime after the adoption of the 1999 Beijing Amendments, including the operation of the Non-Compliance Procedure and the Kigali Amendment on a global phase-down of HFCs
