Endosulfan for POPs listing
International experts have recommended the listing of the organochlorine insecticide/acaricide, endosulfan, on the Stockholm Convention of persistent organic pollutants (POPs). Twenty-four members of the POPs review committee voted in favour of the decision and five abstained, according to the official reporting service, the Earth Negotiations Bulletin. The sixth meeting of the committee was held on October 11th-15th in Geneva, Switzerland. It recommended listing endosulfan on Annex A of the Convention, which would be a ban on production and use, with some exemptions.
