National Implementation Plan


The Stockholm Convention entered into force on 17 May 2004. The Convention regulates 12 substances. 9 of the substances are subject to elimination of production and use, import and export. One substance, DDT, is subject to restriction. Moreover the unintentional emissions of four substances shall be reduced with the aim to eliminate them; dioxin, furans, hexachlorobenzene and polychlorinated biphenyls. According to the Stockholm Convention, article 7, a national implementation plan must be submitted within 2 year from the entry into force of the Convention for that Party. Since production and use of the covered substances has ceased since long, the implementation plan focuses on measures to reduce emissions of unintentionally produced by-products. The implementation plan therefore includes a separate plan for the reduction of the unintentionally produced substances.
