Overcoming barriers to waste trade

Synonyms:
Preventing illegal movement of hazardous waste
Implementation:
One way of combating such trade is through the system called [Prior Informed Consent (PIC) for Certain Hazardous Chemicals in International Trade]. Operated by FAO and UNEP, PIC is a procedure that helps participating countries learn more about the characteristics of potentially hazardous chemicals that may be shipped to them, initiates a decision-making process on the future import of these chemicals and helps disseminate this decision to other countries. The aim is to promote a shared responsibility between exporting and importing countries in protecting human health and the environment (see the [Convention on harmful chemicals and pesticides] ([Rotterdam Convention]), page 202).
