The IIA browser is constantly adapted by reviewing and commenting from UN member states. It is based mainly on information provided by governments on a voluntary basis. A contract is entered into a country`s IGE census after its formal conclusion; Contracts that have been negotiated but have not been signed are not counted. A contract is excluded from the IGE census as soon as its termination comes into force, whether or not it may continue to have legal effects on certain investments during its “survival” period (“sunset”). If the contract is replaced, only one of the contracts between the same parties is accounted for. Depending on the situation, the contract counted may be “old” if it remains in force until the newly concluded AI is ratified.
