The resumed session of the thirty-sixth meeting of the Open-ended Working Group (OEWG 36) of the Parties to the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer convened for its final day on 30 October 2015 in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE). Participants convened in plenary to hear a brief update on the previous day's discussions, noting that the remaining text dealt mostly with issues of finance. They then suspended plenary in order to resume discussions on the terms of reference (ToRs) for a contact group on hydrofluorocarbons’ (HFCs) management.

In the afternoon, a small group formed to finalize the wording on the finance text. The finance text was presented to and approved by the informal discussion group, thus completing the work on the ToRs. Plenary reconvened at 6:21 pm, where participants were presented with the ToRs as agreed by the informal discussions. Plenary adopted the ToRs and agreed to forward them to the Meeting of the Parties, which begins on Sunday, 1 November 2015.

Following the adoption of the report, the resumed session of OEWG 36 was closed at 6:34 pm.
