Emerging policy issues: Managing perfluorinated chemicals (PFCs; resolution II/5):

The Steering Group on PFCs of the Organisation of Economic Cooperation and Development has already started to take forward the recommendations of resolution II/5. A database is in the process of being developed for information exchange purposes, a test version of which should be completed by the end of 2010. The 2009 PFC survey report is completed and was submitted to the 45th Joint Meeting, held in February 2010.

The OECD is continuing to consider how best to develop, facilitate and promote national and international product stewardship programmes and regulatory approaches for perfluorinated chemicals based on its existing work programmes and in association with other participating organizations of the Inter-organization Programme for the Sound Management of Chemicals

Webinar sessions on recent PFC related activities will take place on 2, 8 and 9 March 2011. Details of the event and arrangements for participation are detailed in this document .
