EBA Agrochemical Committee representatives took part in the kick-off meeting of the UN project «Strengthening the Enforcement of the Rotterdam Convention and Building Capacity to Counteract Illegal Trafficking of Chemicals» hosted by the Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources of Ukraine.
During the meeting, participants discussed the current state of implementation of the Rotterdam Convention in Ukraine. Christine Fuell (Rotterdam Convention Secretariat/FAO) updated about the Basel, Rotterdam, and Stockholm Conventions.
The most important issue was fighting against illegal pesticides: statistics, anti-smuggling and anti-counterfeiting, interdisciplinary and international cooperation.
We hope the given event will become an efficient step towards effective anti-counterfeiting!
