6. What are the POPs management framework and implementation strategy in the HKSAR?

The POPs management framework and implementation strategy in the HKSAR are:

  • To develop an integrated and transparent legislative framework and an institutional system to effectively control, minimize and prevent the potentially adverse impacts of POPs on human health and the environment.
  • To uphold the principle of environmental sustainability in pursuing community developments, and apply best available techniques (BAT)/best environmental practices (BEP) to reduce the environmental pollution of POPs.
  • To conduct a structured monitoring programme to better characterize and quantify the local POPs emission profile which is vital to the planning and development of a practical and successful action plan to reduceĀ and ultimately eliminate POPs.
