CRC.16 Task Group Report and Pre-meeting Schedule

A Task Group is created by the Chemical Review Committee (CRC) to undertake a preliminary review of candidate chemicals scheduled for consideration by the CRC at its 16th meeting.

The Task Group prepares a report, which includes its assessment of whether the notification of final regulatory action on PFOA, its salts and PFOA-related compounds submitted by Norway meets the criteria set out in the Rotterdam Convention. The notification is available as a meeting document on the Meeting Documents page. The initial review by the Task Group is intended to facilitate the work of the Committee and does not replace the requirement for the candidate chemicals to be considered by the entire Committee.

The Task Group pre-meeting is open to all Committee members as well as to observers registered to participate in the sixteenth meeting of the CRC.

Members and observers of the Committee are invited to provide comments on the draft report to the Secretariat ( These comments will be considered at the pre-meeting.
