Intersessional Task Group work between the eighteenth and nineteenth meetings of the Committee

Intersessional Task Groups are established by the Chemical Review Committee (CRC) to undertake an initial assessment of candidate chemicals tentatively scheduled for consideration by the CRC.

Each Intersessional Task Group prepares a report, which includes its assessment of whether the individual notifications meet the criteria set out in Annex II to the Rotterdam Convention. The notifications are available below. The initial review by the Intersessional Task Groups is intended to facilitate the work of the Committee and does not replace the requirement for each of the notifications of candidate chemicals to be considered by the entire Committee.

Following past practice, this intersessional work is being advanced to March to June 2023.

The draft reports that will be posted on this page will be finalized at the task group pre-meetings, to be held prior to the Committee’s nineteenth meeting. The Task Group pre-meetings are open to all Committee members as well as to observers registered to participate in the nineteenth meeting of the CRC. The final reports from the Task Groups will be made available to the whole Committee as electronic Conference Room Papers (CRPs) for the meeting.
