Data entry notes: 
Actual text demonstrates that this is not a protocol to a particular agreement but to a variety of other arms control agreements. The terms of the agreement state that entry into force occurred for each signatory as from the date of deposit of its ratification; accessions take effect on the date of the notification by the depositary Government. There is some conflict here, however, as most sources note the initial entry into force date as 8 February 1928 https://www.un.org/disarmament/wmd/bio/1925-geneva-protocol/ but other sites such as the other UN site note it as 9 May 1926 -- https://treaties.un.org/Pages/showDetails.aspx?objid=0800000280167ca8
