National Implementation Plan

Article 7 of the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) establishes that the Parties develop and endeavour to implement a plan for the implementation of their obligations under the Convention and that they transmit the plan to the Conference of the Parties within two years of the date on which the Convention enters into force.

It also establishes that the Parties review and update their implementation plans in a manner to be specified by a decision at the First and Second Meetings of the Conference of the Parties to the Convention (COP 1 and COP 2).

In this regard, the Secretariat of the Stockholm Convention is organising a series of workshops to raise awareness of the measures to be taken to review and update implementation plans, so that the Parties are in a position to fulfil their obligations. Some of these workshops have already taken place, the first was organised in collaboration with the SCP/RAC in Barcelona.

The Secretariat will make all necessary efforts to cover all regions and for this it relies on the Regional Centres, amongst them the SCP/RAC.
