Highlights for Thursday, 17 October 2013

On Thursday, POPRC-9 convened throughout the day in plenary, contact groups, drafting groups and a Friends of the Chair group to address agenda items including: the PFOS reporting format; HCBD; decaBDE; dicofol; and PCP.

The Committee adopted the risk management evaluation for HCBD, and decided to recommend that the COP consider listing this substance in Annexes A and C of the Stockholm Convention. The POPRC also adopted a decision on the process for evaluation of PFOS, its salts and PFOSF, pursuant to paragraphs 5 and 6 of part III of Annex B to the Convention.

Plenary was suspended twice to allow working groups to make progress on decaBDE, PCP, HCBD and dicofol. Bracketed text remains in the documents associated with each of these agenda items, and drafting groups reconvened in the evening to develop drafts for discussion in plenary on Friday. A small group also convened to discuss effective participation in the work of the Committee.
