Legislation


Stockholm Convention

Stockholm Convention is an international legally binding agreement on persistent organic pollutants (POPs).The main objective of Stockholm Convention is to protect to protect human health and the environment from persistent organic pollutants. 

In 1995, the Governing Council of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) called for global action to be taken on POPs, which it defined as “chemical substances that persist in the environment, bio-accumulate through the food web, and pose a risk of causing adverse effects to human health and the environment”.

Following this, the Intergovernmental Forum on Chemical Safety (IFCS) and the International Programme for Chemical Safety (IPCS) prepared an assessment
of the 12 worst offenders. Known as the Dirty Dozen, this list includes eight organochlorine pesticides: aldrin, chlordane, DDT, dieldrin, endrin, heptachlor,
mirex and toxaphene; two industrial chemicals: hexachlorobenzene (HCB) and
the polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) group; and two groups of industrial by-products: dioxins and furans.

The Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants was adopted and opened for signature at the Conference of Plenipotentiaries held from 22 to 23 May 2001 in Stockholm, Sweden. It was signed at a ceremony on 23 May 2001 by 92 States and the European Community. The convention entered into force on May 17th, 2004 with ratification by an initial 128 parties and 151 signatories. Co-signatories agree to outlaw nine of the "dirty dozen" chemicals, limit the use of DDT to malaria control, and curtail inadvertent production of dioxins and furans. Parties to the convention have agreed to a process by which persistent toxic compounds can be reviewed and added to the convention, if they meet certain criteria for persistence and transboundary threat.

There are currently other substances that have been proposed for adding to the protocol: hexachlorobutadiene, octaBDE, pentaBDE, pentachlorobenzene, polychlorinated naphthalenes, SCCPs, dicofol, endosulfan, and PFOS.
