CRC.12 Task Group Reports and Pre-meeting Schedule

Task Groups are created by the Chemical Review Committee (CRC) to undertake a preliminary review of each candidate chemical scheduled for consideration by the CRC at its 12th meeting.

Each Task Group prepares a report, which includes their assessment of whether the individual notifications and the proposal for the severely hazardous pesticides formulation meet the criteria set out in the Rotterdam Convention. The initial review by the Task Group is intended to facilitate the work of the Committee and does not replace the requirement for each of the candidate chemicals to be considered by the entire Committee.

The draft reports that are posted on this page are the result of intersessional work by the Task Groups and are to be finalized at the Task Group pre-meeting,  held on Tuesday, 13 September 2016. These Task Group pre-meetings are open to all Committee members as well as to observers.

The final reports from the Task Groups are being made available to the whole Committee as electronic Conference Room Papers (CRP).
