Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) and Health Canada invite you to attend a webinar on the Chemicals in Products (CiP) Programme, to be held on March 16, 2016 from 10:00 AM to 11:30 AM, Eastern Daylight Time. Please share this invitation with others in your own network who might be interested.
As you might already know, the CiP Programme is a non-binding initiative led by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) under the Strategic Approach to International Chemicals Management; see http://www.unep.org/chemicals and waste/UNEPs Work/ ChemicalsinProductsproject/tabid/56141/Default.aspx) to enable industry, governments, ENGOs and others to address the risks posed by chemicals in products by having access to relevant information.
The main purpose of the webinar is to share the outcomes of the Fourth Session of the International Conference on Chemicals Management (ICCM4), held in Geneva last October, where the CiP Programme document and its Guidance document were released and where UNEP was invited to coordinate, promote and facilitate the CiP Programme’s implementation.
During the webinar, representatives of ECCC and Health Canada, together with Kevin Munn of UNEP, will describe the key objectives of the CiP Programme, the features of the Programme of greatest interest to stakeholders, and some of the next steps in the CiP Programme.
Please confirm your attendance by March 6, 2016, by contacting Mathias Kouassi at firstname.lastname@example.org. Further details will be sent to those who have sent a confirmation letter.
Please do not hesitate to contact either Mathias or myself if you require further information.
