article 60

Charges for sanitary operations.
Ante, p. 3285.
'Without prejudice of the provisions of the last paragraph of article 12, the High Contracting Parties undertake to apply the same tariff of charges to the aircraft of other High Contracting Parties as they apply to their own national aircraft for sanitary operations in their aerodromes.

This tariff shall be as moderate as possible and shall be notified either to the Office International d’Hygiène Publique or to the International Commission for Air Navigation, under the conditions laid down in article 7.Ante, p. 3382.

article 61

Modifications in Convention. Any High Contracting Party which desires to introduce modifications in the present convention shall communicate its proposals to the Government of the Netherlands. The latter will inform the Office International d’Hygiène Publique, which, if it thinks fit, will prepare a protocol amending the convention and will transmit it to the Government of the Netherlands.

The Government of the Netherlands will submit, by dated circular letter, the text of the said protocol to the governments of the other High Contracting Parties, asking them if they accept the proposed modifications. The accession of a High Contracting Party to these modifications will result either from explicit approval given to the Government of the Netherlands or from the fact that it refrains from notifying the latter of any objection within 12 months from the date of the circular letter above referred to.
