In 1994, the UN General Assembly proclaimed 16 September the International Day for the Preservation of the Ozone Layer, commemorating the date of the signing, in 1987, of the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer.[1]

The closure of the hole in the ozone layer was observed 30 years after the protocol was signed.[2] Due to the nature of the gases responsible for ozone depletion their their chemical effects are expected to continue for between 50 to 100 years.[2]
