Persistent Organic Pollutants


5. What is the HKSAR Government doing to fulfill the obligations under the Stockholm Convention?

As required by the Stockholm Convention, the PRC submitted China's National Implementation Plan (NIP) including the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Implementation Plan (HKSARIP) to the Conference of the Parties of the Stockholm Convention before its 3rd meeting in April 2007. The key components of the HKSARIP include an overview of the current POPs situation in Hong Kong; control strategies, priorities and action plans in the next 5-10 years to reduce/eliminate POPs as required by the Stockholm Convention; promotion of public awareness; and enhancement of regional information exchange and collaboration.

The HKSAR Government is implementing the action plans, in phases, under the HKSARIP.
