The various Montenegrin national stakeholders involved in chemicals management and implementation of the Rotterdam Convention received information on RC overview, key elements and actors, main provisions and obligations, including the main benefits and opportunities for the Party from the full implementation of the Convention at national level.

  • Aspect on trade, difference between Annex III (PIC chemicals) and non-Annex III chemicals banned or restricted nationally or in other Parties and reflected through the need of submission of IR decisions, FRA notifications, SHPF proposals and Export notifications and Acknowledgments is clear to all the interested stakeholders
  • Difference between EU explicit consent PIC export notification and RC PIC export notification explained
  • Due to limited national capacities, Montenegro will submit in the near future only IR for which it already has the basis in its national legislation.
  • Montenegro is not manufacturing, exporting or re-exporting formulated products and chemicals, hence they are not sending Export notifications to other Parties, but they are only responding to Export notifications submitted from other Parties exporting chemicals in Montenegro
  • In 2019 Montenegro will establish a National Poison Center within the biggest public University Clinic Center.  After the establishment of the Poison Center, we can expect that Montenegro will be able to submit Proposal for Severely Hazardous Pesticides Formulations.
