Paragraph 6 of part II of Annex II of the Stockholm Convention states that commencing at its first meeting and at least every three years thereafter the Conference of the Parties shall, in consultation with the World Health Organization, evaluate the continued need for DDT for disease vector control on the basis of available scientific, technical, environmental and economic information. The Conference of the Parties now has ordinary meetings every two years.

At its third meeting, the Conference of the Parties concluded in paragraph 2 of decision SC-3/2 that countries that were currently using DDT for disease vector control might need to continue such use until locally appropriate and cost-effective alternatives were available for sustainable transition away from DDT

Introduction

1. Paragraph 6 of part II of Annex B to the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants states that, “commencing at its first meeting, and at least every three years thereafter, the Conference of the Parties shall, in consultation with the World Health Organization [WHO], evaluate the continued need for DDT for disease vector control on the basis of available scientific, technical, environmental and economic information”. Given that the Conference of the Parties now holds ordinary meetings every two years, it stated in paragraph 2 of the revised process for DDT reporting, assessment and evaluation set out in annex I to decision SC-3/2 that an evaluation of the continued need for DDT for disease vector control would be undertaken at each ordinary meeting.
