Translate "Guidelines for Updating of National Implementation Plans (NIPs) Under the Stockholm Convention"

To assist Parties in updating their National Implementation Plans (NIPs) to address the new POPs, a set of guidance documents has been developed/updated by the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) and the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR), working in collaboration with the Secretariat of the Stockholm Convention (SSC) and with financial support of the Global Environment Facility (GEF). These documents aim at supporting Parties in developing strategies to restrict and eliminate the new POPs, by providing guidance on establishing inventories, monitoring the presence of products and articles containing new POPs, and selecting best available techniques and best environmental practices for situations when production, use, and recycling of industrial POPs are allowed by the Convention.

The English vision of these guidance documents has been developed, and available at the website of SSC: http://chm.pops.int/Implementation/NIPs/Guidance/tabid/2882/Default.aspx

SSC has signed an agreement with SCRCAP/BCRC Beijing to translate the guidance documents into Chinese. The Chinese version is expected to be finished by February. The Guidelines include the following documents:

  • Guidance on best available techniques and best environmental practices for the use of perfluorooctane sulfonic acid (PFOS) and related chemicals listed under the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants
  • Guidance for the inventory of perfluorooctane sulfonic acid (PFOS) and related chemicals listed under the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants
  • Guidance on best available techniques and best environmental practices for the recycling and disposal of articles containing polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) listed under the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants
  • Guidance for the inventory of polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) listed under the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants
