Regional capacity-building workshop on new POPs and the process for reviewing and updating NIPs

The Regional capacity-building workshop on new POPs and the process for reviewing and updating NIPs was held from 18 to 21 May 2010 in São Paulo, Brazil.

On 26 August 2010, the amendments to the Stockholm Convention, listing nine additional persistent organic pollutants, will enter into force. In light of this, the workshop aimed at raising awareness on the steps to be taken by Parties to comply with their new obligations, including the process to review and update their national implementation plans. Furthermore, given that the next reporting deadline under the Convention is set up for 31 October 2010, the workshop was also an opportunity for participants to become familiarized with the reporting requirements and the enhanced version of the electronic reporting system.
