POPs in the Pollutant Release and Transfer Register (PRTR) in the Czech Republic.
There were PRTR data released last year for the first time in the Czech Republic, and there are more new states thinking about introduction of the PRTR. This information system about toxic pollutants released into the environment also includes data about POPs released by specific industrial facilities in the Czech Republic. This activity analyzed the existing PRTR data and system with a specific focus on Stockholm Convention needs and requirements. The study pointed out the need to include a large scope of hazardous substances, on site transfers, all Stockholm Convention substances including those evaluated by the POPs Review Committee, and lower reporting thresholds for all POPs.
