Turkey has signed the Stockholm Convention on POPs on May 23rd 2001 and it has been approved by the Turkish Grand National Assembly as 5871 numbered Law (14.04.2009, No.27200), then published on July 30th 2009 as approved by the Council of Ministers (30.07.2009, No.27304). The Convention is officially effective since January 12th 2010.
As stated by the Article 7 of the Convention, Turkey prepared the first NIP between 2004 and 2006 funded by GEF and revised it in 2010, submitted to the Stockholm Secretariat in 2011 which included initial 12 POPs issues of concern like uses, import, export, production, distribution in country and source related inventory, current stockpiles and its disposal options assessment, contaminated sites, POPs chemicals related infrastructure, legal instruments, monitoring, research and development capacity, monitoring system establishment and use. The first plan was reviewed and updated, in accordance with the responsibilities to the Convention, by funding with GEF on capacity building between the years 2012-2013. Later, in the framework of an EU Project, it is revised in order to cover CLRTAP/POPs Protocol and EU POPs Regulation in 2013-2015. Under this project, in addition to NIP revision, LGA, draft by-law, RIA and SIA were prepared. The NIP Update is submitted to the Stockholm Secretariat in 2016 which included the inventory, current stockpiles, contaminated sites, legal instruments, monitoring, research and development capacity, and action plans related to initial and new POPs according to Annex A, B and C.CONTINUE READING ON: National Implementation Plan For Persistent Organic Pollutants In Turkey
