CRC Chair Jürgen Helbig, Germany, and Co-Executive Secretary of the Rotterdam Convention William Murray

CRC-11 The eleventh meeting of the Chemical Review Committee (CRC) to the Rotterdam Convention on the Prior Informed Consent (PIC) Procedure for Certain Hazardous Chemicals and Pesticides in International Trade opened Monday at the headquarters of the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) in Rome, Italy. Co-Executive Secretary of the Rotterdam Convention, William Murray, FAO, discussed the decision on highly hazardous pesticides taken by the recently convened Fourth International Conference on Chemicals Management (ICCM4) and the FAO pesticide registration toolkit, underscoring that the CRC is an important process for knowledge sharing, and that its decisions serve the basis of the COP's decisions.

In the morning, the CRC adopted the agenda, and reviewed the outcomes of the Seventh meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Rotterdam Convention (COP7) relevant to the work of the CRC. The Committee then initiated consideration of the decision guidance documents (DGDs) on SCCPs and tributyltin compounds for industrial use.

In the afternoon participants heard a report of the Bureau on the preliminary review of notifications of final regulatory action and the proposal for a severely hazardous pesticide formulation (SPHF), and reviewed notifications of final regulatory action on atrazine and carbofuran.

Contact groups were established on atrazine and carbofuran.
