GOVERNMENT VIEWS ON THE NEW DRAFT TEXT FOR INC3

 

The second session of the intergovernmental negotiating committee on mercury  (INC2) was held in Chiba, Japan, from 24 to 28 January 2011. One of the outcomes of the session was a request to the secretariat to prepare, for consideration by the committee at its next session, a new draft text of the comprehensive and suitable approach to mercury called for by UNEP GC decision 25/5.

 

This new draft text (document UNEP(DTIE)/Hg/INC.3/3) is based on the draft elements paper discussed during INC2, and reflects views on the possible content of the mercury instrument, as expressed by the parties at the second session and as submitted by parties to the secretariat in writing by 25 March 2011. Views on elements of a comprehensive and suitable approach to a legally binding instrument on mercury, as submitted by Governments, are listed below. 

 

GOVERNMENT SUBMISSIONS RELEVANT TO OTHER DOCUMENTS FOR INC3

The secretariat was also requested at the second session of the intergovernmental negotiating committee on mercury  to provide several other documents for consideration at INC3. In response to this request, the secretariat called for submissions of relevant information from interested Governments, including on releases of mercury from the oil and gas sector and on the use of mercury as a medical preservative. The submissions received are listed below.
