Process for determining evidence of ongoing trade

This paper describes the process followed by the Secretariat in determining ongoing international trade in a chemical scheduled for review by the Chemical Review Committee (CRC).

The criteria for listing banned or severely restricted chemicals in Annex III of the Convention are set out in Annex II. Criterion (c) (iv) requires that the CRC consider “whether there is evidence of ongoing international trade in the chemical”. In order to ensure that such information is available to the CRC the Secretariat, once it receives a second notification of final regulatory action for a chemical, initiates the collection of information on the international trade in that chemical.
