Decision Guidance Documents

For each chemical listed in Annex III of the Convention and subject to the PIC procedure a Decision Guidance Document (DGD) is prepared. It sets out the scope of the chemical subject to the PIC procedure and contains basic information on the chemical, inter alia its hazard classification, additional sources of information on the chemical and information on possible alternatives.

A decision guidance document is not intended as the only source of information on a chemical, nor is it updated or revised following its adoption. Additional information submitted by Parties for chemicals in Annex III can be found on this page.

* Only the CAS numbers of parent compounds are listed. For a list of other relevant CAS numbers, reference may be made to the relevant Decision Guidance Document.
