Quick Guide to IPEN Views on POPRC10

In preparation for the 10th meeting of the Stockholm Convention's POPs Review Committee (POPRC), which will take place the last week of October in Rome, IPEN has developed a Quick Guide to IPEN Views on POPRC10 in English and français. This document highlights IPEN's views on issues that the Committee will review at the meeting, including whether pentachlorophenol (used in wood preservatives) and its salts and esters, DecaBDE (extensively used as an additive flame retardant) and dicofol (a chemical that kills mites that is structurally similar to DDT) should move forward in the Convention, and the assessment of alternatives to PFOS.
