More pesticides for PIC (prior informed consent) list
International experts recommend the inclusion of another two pesticides on the prior informed consent (PIC) list under the Rotterdam Convention. The Convention's Chemical Review Committee called for the listing of the organocheorine insecticide, endosulfan, and the wood preservative/anti-fouling paint, tributyl tin. The Committee made the recommendations at the CRC's third meeting in Rome, Italy in March. The Conference of the Parties to the Convention will consider them in Rome in 2008.
