Information session on the review and amendment of Annexes A and B to the Minamata Convention

As written on Minamata Convention Website: 

“The fourth meeting of the Conference of the Parties (COP4) in March 2022 amended Annex A to the Convention (mercury-added products) and decided that COP-5 will consider further amendment to Annex A and Annex B (mercury-using manufacturing processes). As requested by COP, the Secretariat invited submission of information for this consideration, and received information from four parties and three stakeholders. This information session is an opportunity to hear the presentation on these submissions and ask questions.”
