SAICM Endorsement Form

Why should your organization endorse the Common Statement?
By endorsing the Common Statement your organization is joining in this global effort to work for a future where exposure to toxic chemicals is no longer a source of harm, and to commit, along with other NGO and civil society organizations, to the SAICM goal: "to achieve the sound management of chemicals throughout their life cycle so that, by 2020, chemicals are used and produced in ways that lead to the minimization of significant adverse effects on human health and the environment."

Lead

Why is lead paint a problem?

Lead paint is one of the most widespread sources of lead exposure today. There are no safe levels of lead exposure for children and increasing evidence shows that even low levels of lead exposure are harmful for adults.

IPEN participated in SAICM’s (Strategic Approach International Chemicals Management’s) 3rd international conference, which took place in Kenya from 17 – 21 September, 2012.

Prior to the meeting, IPEN finalized three booklets relevant to the SAICM conference:
