Delegates met in a morning Plenary to hear reports from Tuesday's meetings of the Working Group on Compliance, the informal group on the budget, and the PIC Regions. The INC then resumed its consideration of issues relating to the consistency between the scope of reported national regulatory actions and the inclusion of chemicals in the interim PIC procedure, agreeing to decisions on DNOC, GRANOX TBC and SPINOX T, asbestos and monocrotophos. It also addressed agenda items on preparation for the COP, issues arising out of the Conference of Plenipotentiaries, and the status of signature and ratification of the Convention. The Working Group on Compliance continued meeting throughout the day and into the evening.
