Description: The Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants (Stockholm Convention) establishes rules for regulation of Persistant Organic Pollutants (POPs). POPs are highly toxic, persistent chemicals that bioaccumulate and move long distances in the environment.
The Stockholm Convention seeks to eliminate or restrict the production and use of all intentionally produced POPs. It also seeks to limit and eventually eliminate the release of unintentionally produced POPs.
The Convention is available in several languages as a .pdf document. The site also contains national implementation plans, resolutions, news, scientific information, and other documents.
