Fifth meeting of the Persistent Organic Pollutants Review Committee (POPRC5) to the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs)

12-16 October 2009 | Geneva, Switzerland

Stockholm Convention on POPs

The fifth meeting of the Persistent Organic Pollutants Review Committee (POPRC-5) of the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) took place from 12-16 October 2009 in Geneva, Switzerland. Over 117 participants attended the meeting, including 29 of 31 Committee members, 52 government and party observers, one intergovernmental organization, 30 non-governmental organizations, and five invited experts.

POPRC-5 addressed several operational issues, including, inter alia: work programmes on new POPs; substitutions and alternatives; toxicological interactions; and activities undertaken for effective participation in the work of the Committee. The POPRC also considered the draft risk profiles for endosulfan and short-chained chlorinated paraffins (SCCPs), and discussed whether hexabromocyclododecane (HBCD) met the Annex D criteria for listing under the Stockholm Convention.
