In particular Participating Governments shall ensure suitable accommodation and medical care.
Art.3.3 3. The Observers shall not be vested with any administrative power in regard to the activities of the land station or group of land stations to which they are appointed, and shall have no authority to interfere in any way with those activites.
Art.3.4 4. Observers shall be enabled to observe freely the operations of the land station or group of land stations to which they are appointed, and shall be accorded the necessary facilities for carrying out their duties.

An Observer shall draw up a report covering his observations including possible infractions of the provisions of the Convention and the Schedule which have taken place during the season, and shall submit it both to the manager of the land station and to the senior national inspector for information and such explanations and comments as they may wish to make. All such explanations and comments shall be attached to the Observer's report, which shall be transmitted to the Secretary of the Commission as soon as possible.
