Your contribution matters! SAICM progress report

Reporting on SAICM implementation is a key tool in assessing progress towards the achievement of the Johannesburg Plan of Implementation's goal of sound management of chemicals by 2020.

The fourth session of the International Conference on Chemicals Management (ICCM4) requested the SAICM secretariat to develop a progress report that includes the achievements, strengths and weaknesses of SAICM implementation for the period 2014-2016.

In order to facilitate the process, an online survey has been developed. The survey can only be submitted once per stakeholder, therefore every SAICM focal point has received a separate e-mail with a personalised link to participate in the survey. The results of this survey will be reflected in the progress report, which will be considered by the Open-ended Working Group at its third meeting.

We would like to reiterate that the progress report will be based on the information submitted by SAICM stakeholders. Therefore, stakeholders across all sectors are encouraged to complete the survey so that their activities are reflected in the report.

The deadline to complete the survey is 31 March 2018. If you have any questions or need the link to the survey, please contact the SAICM secretariat at
