  PERFLUORINATED CHEMICALS AND THE TRANSITION TO SAFER ALTERNATIVES


                                    BEIJING, 5 SEPTEMBER 2011




                                         SUMMARY RECORD




Background and workshop objectives

In May 2009, the second session of the International Conference on Chemicals Management (ICCM2)
adopted Resolution II/5 for the management of perfluorinated chemicals (PFCs) and transition to safer
alternatives. The resolution invites governments, international organizations, and other stakeholders “to
consider the development, facilitation and promotion in an open, transparent and inclusive manner of
national and international stewardship programmes and regulatory approaches to reduce emissions and
the content of relevant perfluorinated chemicals of concern in products and to work toward global
elimination, where appropriate and technically feasible.”

UNEP, DTIE, Chemicals Branch and the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development
(OECD) have established a partnership to follow up on the above decision and are in that context
establishing a Global PFC Group with representatives from each of the SAICM regions, non-
governmental organizations, and other international organizations, as well as current OECD participants
on PFC activities.

The objective of this workshop was to inform SAICM delegates from the Asia-Pacific region about recent
PFC related regulatory and other activities in the OECD, to exchange information on relevant activities in
the Asia-Pacific region, to brainstorm about possible activities that could be carried-out by the newly
established Global PFC Group (i.e. to support developing countries in their efforts in this area) and to
move the PFC agenda forward more broadly.

Summary of discussions


The UNEP/OECD Workshop on perfluorinated chemicals took place on 5 September 2011 in the
framework of the SAICM Asia-Pacific Regional meeting.

Presentations were made by 8 countries (China, India, Japan, Korea, Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia,
Kiribati) and one NGO from the Asia-Pacific region on the status of knowledge and information needs
and any regulatory activities they had on PFCs. These highlighted that while some data was available on
measurements of PFCs in the environment, there remained a critical and largely unmet need for
information on PFCs on both the technical and policy levels.

Governments of Russia, the US and Germany presented on their PFC programmes and/or the results of
their investigations into the fate of PFCs in the environment and measured in humans, as well as activities
to reduce exposure of humans and the environment. Australia presented the results of the 2009 OECD
PFC Survey. A representative from the FluoroCouncil presented the work being done by its members in
addressing PFC issues. All power point presentations are available in the following link:
www.oecd.org/ehs/pfc.

The final session consisted of a brainstorming to develop ideas for possible future work of the
OECD/UNEP Global PFC Group. The following ideas were discussed:

         The need for information exchange was clearly identified by the discussions of the workshop
        and the availability of information through the OECD PFC Web Portal was welcomed by
        participants. However, participants perceived a need for a concise summary of information that
        could be used to raise awareness of PFCs and assist them in formulating policy. The following
        synthesis papers could be developed by the Global PFC Group:
            o A synthesis paper on scientific evidence on PFCs including shorter chain C6 and C4
                 substances;
            o A paper that summarises information about regulatory approaches (e.g. those applied in
                 the OECD);
            o A synthesis paper on alternatives including non-fluorinated and non-chemical
                 alternatives;
            o A synthesis paper on uses
            o
         The further population of the PFC Web Portal (www.oecd.org/ehs/pfc), including with relevant
        information from developing and emerging economies would be another important measure to
        improve information.
         The extension of the OECD survey on PFCs to bring in reporting from the companies who have
        not participated yet in the survey was highlighted as a step which would be highly beneficial
        towards completing the current knowledge base on the use and releases of PFCs. Participants
        suggested that it would be helpful to circulate the survey questionnaire to countries and that a
        webinar discussing the survey methodology could help to build support for this activity.
         Many of the participants noted that, as they are not producing or processing PFCs in their
        countries, the main issue for them is to improve their understanding of articles / products which
        are being imported that contain PFCs. There is hence, a need for information that could help to
        identify these products. A paper that presents the major uses of different categories of PFCs could
        help to fulfil this need. Another idea that was brought forward is to develop a product labelling
        scheme as previously discussed at an earlier OECD workshop.
         The need to carry-out an economic evaluation of the costs and benefits associated with the
        elimination of PFCs was identified.
         The Global PFC Group could lend its support to the development of guidance for the updating
        of National Implementation Plans under the Stockholm Convention.

Specifically with reference to the representation of the region in the Global PFC Group and the activities
of the Group, the following points were made in the meeting:
         The OECD/UNEP Global PFC Group is still in formation. Terms of reference have been
        circulated by UNEP Chemicals to SAICM focal points and made available on the SAICM
        website. Nominations and coordination of the members from the Asia-Pacific region will be
        taking place through the SAICM regional focal point.
         The target is to have the regional members nominated by the end of September, and to have a
        first teleconference and the development of the work programme of the group in
        October/November 2011.
         Webinars on topics of interest to the group should be developed to keep the dialogue and
        information exchange going. Information on regulatory approaches, scientific insights and on
        alternatives were mentioned as potential topics for future webinars. It was noted that past
        webinars have presented some of this information and that they could be repeated in the future to
        respond the needs expressed during the Workshop.
       Participation in the development of guidance on PFCs by the global group would be one
       potential activity of the Group. This might be considered for PFOS specifically, through feedback
       and communications with the Secretariat of the Stockholm Convention.


These ideas will be fed into the discussions on future work that will be taking place within the
OECD/UNEP Global PFC Group and will provide a valuable starting point for these discussions.
