Article 3.2 of the Convention on Wetlands commits Contracting Parties to monitor their Ramsar sites and inform the Secretariat whenever the ecological character of a site has changed, is changing, or is likely to change as a result of human interference. To help interpreting that obligation, Australia’s Department of the Environment, Water, Heritage and the Arts has published “National Guidance on Notifying Change in Ecological Character of Australian Ramsar Wetlands (Article 3.2)”, as module 3 in its National Guidelines for Ramsar Wetlands series.

This very helpful document is available here in PDF and from the Australian authorities' Web site. [11/01/10]
