CRC-10POPRC-10POPRC-10 met for its second day of work on Tuesday, 28 October 2014. In the morning, contact groups for pentachlorophenol (PCP) and the process to evaluate the alternatives to perfluorooctane sulfonic acid (PFOS), its salts and perfluorooctane sulfonyl fluoride (PFOSF) were held. POPRC members met in a drafting group to discuss the draft risk profile for decabromodiphenyl ether (decaBDE).

During lunch, participants attended a side event on the measurements and challenges of POP BDEs in Dutch waste streams.

In the afternoon, POPRC members and observers met in plenary. The Committee considered the guidance on alternatives to PFOS, its salts, PFOSF and their related chemicals. POPRC members adopted a decision on coordination and collaboration with other scientific subsidiary bodies. The Committee considered suggestions for improving the quality of draft risk profile and draft risk management evaluations and heard a presentation on a proposed Science Fair to be held on the margins of the Conferences of the Parties to the Basel, Rotterdam and Stockholm Conventions in 2015. The Committee adopted a decision on enhancing the effective participation in the work of the Committee.

In the evening, the drafting groups discussing dicofol, PFOS alternatives and decaBDE convened, as did the contact group on PCP.
