Rotterdam Chemical Review Committee recommends six additions to convention

The Rotterdam Convention's Chemical Review Committee has recommended the pesticides endosulfan and azinphos methyl, the pesticide formulation Gramoxone Super, and the industrial chemicals PFOS, pentaBDE mixtures and octaBDE mixtures be included in the convention's prior informed consent (PIC) procedure. According to an April 1 news release, under the convention, member governments are responsible for ensuring that no exports leave their territory when an importing country has decided not to accept a PIC chemical. The recommendations will be forwarded to the fifth meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Rotterdam Convention in June.
