A Toxics-Free Future


Foundation in Support of Civil Initiatives (FSCI) and Independent Ecological Expertise (IEE), IPEN Participating Organizations in Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan, recently successfully completed Quick Start Programme-funded projects related to supporting SAICM and GHS (Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals) implementation in their respective countries.

The Strategic Approach to International Chemicals Management's (SAICM's) 2nd Open Ended Working Group (OEWG2) meeting is currently underway in Geneva, Switzerland and numerous representatives from IPEN Participating Organizations are in attendance. In the run-up to the meeting, IPEN prepared a "Quick Views" document (English / русский / Español / français / العربية), a summary statement of IPEN views on issues that are being discussed at the OEWG2. These include, but are not limited to, chemicals in products, lead in paint, electronic and electrical products, endocrine disrupting chemicals, and nanotechnology.
