IPEN

A Toxics-Free Future

SAICM

The Strategic Approach to International Chemicals Management's (SAICM's) 2nd Open Ended Working Group (OEWG2) meeting is currently underway in Geneva, Switzerland and numerous representatives from IPEN Participating Organizations are in attendance. In the run-up to the meeting, IPEN prepared a "Quick Views" document (English / русский / Español / français / العربية), a summary statement of IPEN views on issues that are being discussed at the OEWG2. These include, but are not limited to, chemicals in products, lead in paint, electronic and electrical products, endocrine disrupting chemicals, and nanotechnology. 

Actions for OEWG2

IPEN, in collaboration with the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the World Health Organization (WHO), held a side event on Global Lead Paint Elimination on Tuesday, 16 December at 13:15 in Room 18 of the CICG in Geneva, where the SAICM OEWG2 took place.
