Fourth meeting of Working Group on the Development

28 - 29 April 2014

Geneva

The seventh meeting of the Conference of the Parties, in November 2012, requested the Working Group on the Development of the Convention to draft a revised annex I to bring it into line with the United Nations Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS, ST/SG/AC.10/30/Rev.4) and to maintain consistency with the corresponding European Union legislation (Seveso III Directive). The meeting also requested the Working Group to evaluate the possible amendment of the Convention to address a number of other provisions and issues.

Following initial discussions at its third meeting (Geneva, 3-4 September 2013), the Working Group on Development will continue discussions on annex I and other possible amendments of the Convention. In particular, the meeting will provide an opportunity to discuss the revised annex I to the Convention and to review an updated background paper on other possible amendments to the Convention.

The meeting will be held in room V, Palais des Nations, Geneva. (Note of 4 April 2014: There was a change in the room number.)
