The UN Environment and the World Health Organization are jointly distributing the publication presenting the official texts of SAICM. This publication has been financially supported by the Governments of Germany and Sweden. The foreword was kindly provided by H.E. Minister Mariano Arana Sanchez of Uruguay and Ambassador Viveka Bohn of Sweden, who presided over the adoption of SAICM at the first session of the International Conference on Chemicals Management held in Dubai in February 2006.
The SAICM texts are available in the six United Nations languages. Copies may be requested from the SAICM secretariat.
