Peru Drafts Technical Regulation for the health and environmental management of polychlorinated biphenyls

The notified Technical Regulation establishes the conditions necessary for the health and environmental management of stockpiles and residues of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), and stockpiles and residues containing or contaminated with polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), with the aim of protecting human health and promoting environmental quality. It contains measures to prevent the contamination of the environment with PCBs and, therefore, avoid risks to human health. It also contains several of the articles established in the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants (ratified by Peru in Supreme Decree No. 067-2005-RE).
