A Toxics-Free Future



In April 2011, IPEN called upon the fifth Stockholm Convention Conference of the Parties (COP5) to "Keep the Promise", with a series of recommendations. Among these were listing endosulfan in Annex A of the convention, tightening up oversight of DDT use and regulation, and to create evaluation processes for bromodiphenyl ethers, PFOS and related compounds, and notification forms. We also called upon members to consider elimination of brominate diphenyl ethers from the waste stream, as well as risk reduction from PFOS, its salts, and PFOSF.
