This chapter analyses the duration of the ATT and the withdrawal of state parties which is covered by Article 24 of the ATT. The ATT imposes no time limits. Any state party may withdraw from the ATT upon formal notification to the Depositary (the UN Secretary-General). Withdrawal may take effect not less than ninety days after the Depositary receives the notification of withdrawal. A state party remains responsible for its financial and substantive obligations for the period until the withdrawal takes effect. The procedure for withdrawal requires formal notification to the Depositary (the UN Secretary-General), which may include the reasons for withdrawal but, as we have seen, is not obliged to do so. The Depositary is required to inform all other states parties of any notification of withdrawal.
