Second session of the International Conference on Chemicals Management (ICCM2)

Geneva, Switzerland, 11-15 May 2009

ICCM2 was the first opportunity to review progress in the implementation of SAICM since its adoption in 2006 and the first time the ICCM performed its official functions as a high-level international forum for multi-stakeholder and multi-sectoral discussion and exchange of experience on chemicals management issues. ICCM2 evaluated SAICM implementation so far, addressed emerging policy issues (nanotechnology, chemicals in articles, lead in paint and electronic waste), considered long-term financing of SAICM, took strategic decisions on the future direction of SAICM, determined future reporting arrangements, finalized certain outstanding institutional matters, exchanged scientific and technical information and decided on the budget and activities for the next inter-sessional period.
