At its fifth meeting held in Geneva from 25 to 29 April 2011, the Conference of the Parties of the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants agreed on the decisions contained in annex I to the report of the meeting, document UNEP/POPS/COP.5/36. Many of the decisions included invitations to Parties and others to provide information.

The Executive Secretary has sent a letter to Parties and observers to solicit information requested in the decisions adopted by the Conference of the Parties. To facilitate response, the letter contains the individual requests organized according to the decisions. More forms for submitting information will be made available closer to the deadlines of the individual requests.

Information regarding each decision can be submitted separately, particularly since their deadlines for submission vary.
