(a) be selective (with respect to provisions expressing intentions rather than commitments) and be precise and consistent (with respect to the text used to explain intentions or commitments); b) the above preconditions (CP); and (c) indicate the specific issues to be agreed to reach an agreement. The IHR (2005) is an international agreement between 194 States Parties and the World Health Organization on surveillance, sunshine and response to all events that could pose a threat to international public health. The objective of the IHR (2005) is to prevent, protect, control and respond to a public health response to the spread of diseases internationally, in a manner adapted to public health risks, limited to them, avoiding unnecessary intervention in international transport and trade. (International Health Regulations, Article 2). For more information, please see THE LA fact sheets. Under international law, a treaty is a legally binding agreement between states (countries). A treaty can be called a convention, protocol, pact, agreement, etc. It is the content of the agreement, not its name, that makes it a treaty. Thus, the Geneva Protocol and the Biological Weapons Convention are the two treaties, although neither treaty in its name.
Under U.S. law, a treaty is a legally binding agreement between countries that requires ratification and „consultation and approval“ of the Senate. All other agreements (internationally treated) are called executive agreements, but are nevertheless legally binding on the United States under international law. It would, of course, not be very favourable to convey the non-binding nature of a statement of intent (or worse, a heads of agreement) starting with words of (full) consensus. The text that gives the text could therefore be preceded by design techniques. Many lawyers are too careful in drafting statements of intent or concept sheets and repeat the non-binding nature of each provision, making the whole document difficult to read. In addition to the fact that a terminology sheet or letter of intent is not binding, there are certain techniques for creating a functional and non-binding document. To avoid a statement of intent or a terminology sheet being considered binding, it is recommended that the first three examples be cases of terminology sheet, statement of intent or statement of intent.
