Multi-stakeholder workshop on a national road map for paraquat dichloride management in Indonesia and implementation of the Rotterdam Convention | 12-13 November 2019
The Conference of the Parties at COP-9, held in May 2019 discussed inter alia the listing of liquid formulations (emulsifiable concentrate and soluble concentrate) containing paraquat dichloride at or above 276 g/L, corresponding to paraquat ion at or above 200 g/L (SHPF). COP had decided in previous meetings that all criteria for listing were met. However, COP could not agree unanimously on the listing in Annex III of the Convention.
