Con­ven­tion was rat­i­fied by the Repub­lic of Moldova in June 2nd, 1998 accord­ing to the Par­lia­ment of RM Deci­sion nr.1599-XIII from 10 March 1998.

Rot­ter­dam Con­ven­tion

The Rot­ter­dam Con­ven­tion on prior informed con­sent (PIC) pro­ce­dure which cov­ers pes­ti­cides and indus­trial chem­i­cals that are a sub­ject of inter­na­tional trade.

Con­ven­tion encour­ages share of respon­si­bil­i­ties and coop­er­a­tion among Par­ties in the area of inter­na­tional trade of cer­tain haz­ardous chem­i­cals in order to pro­tect human health and the envi­ron­ment from poten­tial harm; to con­tribute to the envi­ron­men­tally sound use of those haz­ardous chem­i­cals, by facil­i­tat­ing infor­ma­tion exchange about their char­ac­ter­is­tics, by pro­vid­ing for a national decision-​making process on their import and export and by dis­sem­i­nat­ing these deci­sions to Par­ties. The Con­ven­tion was rat­i­fied by the Repub­lic of Moldova accord­ing to Law nr 389-​XV from 25.11.2004.

Stock­holm Con­ven­tion

The main goal of the Stock­holm Con­ven­tion is the pro­tec­tion of human health and envi­ron­ment. Under this con­ven­tion presently are reg­is­tered 12 POP pes­ti­cides (aldrine, chlor­dane, DDT, dield­rin, endrin, hep­ta­clor, mirex, tox­afen), indus­trial chem­i­cal sub­stances (hexa­clor­ben­zen — HCB si poli­clori­nat bife­nil — PCB) and diox­ine and furans sub prod­ucts. These sub­stances have toxic par­tic­u­lar­i­ties, resist degra­da­tion, are bio­log­i­cally accu­mu­lated and trans­ported through air, water and migrant species along inter­na­tional boarder and can be deposited far away from the place of their ori­gin. The Repub­lic of Moldova has rat­i­fied the Stock­holm Con­ven­tion on Per­sis­tent Organic Pol­lu­tants by Law nr. 40-​XV from 19.02.2004. Min­istry of Ecol­ogy and Nat­ural Resource is des­ig­nated as com­pe­tent author­ity for coor­di­na­tion of exe­cu­tion of pro­vi­sions of the convention.

Strate­gic Approach to Inter­na­tional Chem­i­cals Man­age­ment (SAICM) was adopted at the Inter­na­tional Con­fer­ence on Chem­i­cals Man­age­ment (ICCM) on 6th Feb­ru­ary 2006 in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

The Strate­gic Approach to Inter­na­tional Chem­i­cals Man­age­ment is an inter­na­tional pol­icy frame­work to fos­ter the sound man­age­ment of chemicals.

The Strate­gic Approach was man­dated by the United Nations Envi­ron­men­tal Prog¬ramme (UNEP) and endorsed by the Johan­nes­burg World Sum­mit on Sus­tain­able Devel­op­ment in 2002 and the New York World Sum­mit in Sep­tem­ber 2005. It has been devel­oped by a multi-​stakeholder Prepara­tory Com­mit­tee, co-​convened by UNEP, the Inter­gov­ern­men­tal Forum on Chem­i­cal Safety (IFCS) and the Inter-​Organization Pro­gramme for the Sound Man­age­ment of Chem­i­cals (IOMC).

SAICM was devel­oped by a multi-​stakeholder and multi-​sectoral Prepara­tory Com¬mittee and sup­ports the achieve­ment of the goal agreed at the 2002 Johan­nes­burg World Sum­mit on Sus­tain­able Devel­op­ment of ensur­ing that, by the year 2020, chem­i­cals are pro­duced and used in ways that min­i­mize sig­nif­i­cant adverse impacts on the envi­ron­ment and human health.

Rat­i­fied con­ven­tions

Chem­i­cals man­age­ment con­ven­tions rat­i­fied by the Repub­lic of Moldova so far are the Stock­holm Con­ven­tion on Per­sis­tent Organic Pol­lu­tants (POPs) and the Rot­ter­dam Con­ven­tion on Prior Con­sent Pro­ce­dure (PIC) for Cer­tain know­ingly Haz­ardous Chem­i­cals and Pes­ti­cides sub­ject to inter­na­tional trade. How­ever, Moldova rat­i­fied the Basel Con­ven­tion on the Con­trol of Trans­bound­ary Move­ments of Haz­ardous Wastes and their Dis­posal, which addresses the issue of waste man­age­ment of haz­ardous chem­i­cals. Another impor­tant inter­na­tional treaty in the field of man­age­ment of chem­i­cals being rat­i­fied by Par­lia­ment of Moldova Mon­treal Pro­to­col on Sub­stances that Deplete the Ozone Layer to the Vienna Con­ven­tion on the Pro­tec­tion of the Ozone Layer.
