Sir/ Madam,

 

This has reference to the letter received from The  Ministry  of  Environment    Forest  and  Climate  Change  (MoEF&CC).

 

As per same,  17th meeting   of  Persistent  Organic  Pollutant   Review  Committee (POPRC) of  the  Stockholm   Convention  is scheduled   to  be  held  from  20-24  January,   2021

 

The provisional  agenda  is enclosed. 

 

The detailed  information   is available  on Stockholm   convention website  at:
http://chm.pops.int/TheConvention/POPsReviewCommittee/Meetings/POPRC17/Overview/tabid/8900/Default.aspx

 

As per the provisional agenda, the POPRC-17 will consider the following technical matters

 

1.      Consideration   of a draft  risk management   evaluation   on  methoxychlor;


2.      Consideration   of draft  risk profiles  in respect  of the  following   chemicals:
·         Dechlorane Plus;
·         UV-328;


3.      Consideration  of chemicals proposed  for  listing  in Annexes  A, B and/or C to the Convention:
·         Chlorpyrifos;


·         Chlorinated paraffins with  carbon  chain  lengths  in the  range  Cl4-17    and chlorination levels  at or   exceeding   45  per cent  chlorine  by weight;


·         Long-chain   perfluorocarboxylic acids,  their  salts  and related  compounds;

FYI

Annex A (Elimination)


Parties must take measures to eliminate the production and use of the chemicals listed under Annex A. Specific exemptions are available in Annex A and apply only to Parties that have registered for them.
It may  be  noted  that  to  enable  this  Ministry   in firming   up  a 'Country   Position'   on  the above   mentioned    chemicals,    comments/     inputs   on  status   of   registration,     its   usage   and technical  studies  w.r.t.   Chemicals,   impact  of their  ban is required. 

 

Annex B (Restriction)


Parties must take measures to restrict the production and use of the chemicals listed under Annex B in light of any applicable acceptable purposes and/or specific exemptions listed in the Annex. 

 

Annex C (Unintentional production)


Parties must take measures to reduce the unintentional releases of chemicals listed under Annex C with the goal of continuing minimization and, where feasible, ultimate elimination.

 

Please note if this proposal is concluded in above convention then it will badly impact the interests of manufactures of these chemicals.

 

In  view  of  the  above   we request you to send  information/ comments   to pw@chemexcil.in,   amrita@chemexcil.in  cc to  dg@chemexcil.in to enable us to inform the Ministry in firming up a view on various chemicals of interest for POPRC-17 and subsequent COP meetings.

 

Thanks and Regards
