                 Official communication with Parties and observers
                 Note by the Secretariat

         I.      Introduction
                 1.      The present document describes the existing routes of official communications between Parties,
                 observers and the Secretariat under the Stockholm Convention, provides an opportunity for Parties to
                 review the existing lists of contacts for those communications and suggests possible options for
                 improving communication during meetings of the Conference of the Parties and during intersessional
                 periods. The options suggested are based on the review of the activities needed for an efficient
                 implementation of the Convention, the practice of other multilateral environmental agreements and the
                 common practice of the United Nations.
                 2.      The document consists of three parts: official communication with Parties; communication with
                 and representation of observers; and possible action by the Conference of the Parties. The second part,
                 on observers, is divided into three sections, each relevant to a group of observers as identified in
                 Article 19, paragraph 8, of the Convention or rules 6 and 7 of the rules of procedure of the Conference.
                 These groups are: States not Parties; the United Nations and its specialized agencies, the International
                 Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and the Global Environment Facility (GEF); and national and
                 international governmental and non-governmental bodies and agencies.

         II.     Official communication with Parties
                 3.      Several provisions of the Stockholm Convention require the exchange of official information
                 between Parties, between Parties and States that are not Parties, and between Parties and the Secretariat.
                 These provisions are found, for example, in Article 3, paragraph 2 (b) (iii) (annual certification scheme
                 with States not Parties); Article 4, paragraphs 3, 6 and 8 (notification, extension and withdrawal of
                 specific exemptions); Article 5, subparagraph (a) (submission of action plans on releases); Article 7,

UNEP/POPS/COP.2/26

             paragraph 1 (transmittal of implementation plans); Article 8, paragraphs 1, 4 (b), 5, 6, 7 and 8
             (submission of proposals for listing of chemicals in Annexes A and B, and exchange of information
             relevant to the proposals); and Article 15, paragraph 2 (provision of information to the Secretariat).
             4.       Pursuant to paragraphs 1–3 of Article 9, Parties shall facilitate or undertake the exchange of
             information relevant to the reduction or elimination of the production, use and release of persistent
             organic pollutants (POPs) and on alternatives to them. Under paragraph 3 of Article 9, Parties shall
             designate national focal points for the exchange of such information. As set forth in paragraph 2 of that
             article, Parties may exchange that information directly or thought the Secretariat.
             5.       Working arrangements for the implementation of the Convention also require the exchange of
             official information between Parties and between Parties and the Secretariat. Those arrangements may
             be related to nomination of participants in subsidiary bodies under the Convention in accordance with
             their terms of reference, provision of information related to a non-compliance regime, communication
             under the financial rules adopted by the Conference and other financial matters, and also all other types
             of official communications where official positions of Parties are stated.
             6.       During the negotiation of the Convention, in the interim period of its implementation and until
             the present the Secretariat has relied on the lists of United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP)
             official contact points in Governments as official accredited sources of information from countries.
             These lists are provided by the Secretariat on request.
             7.       The practice of other multilateral environmental agreements indicates that Parties nominate
             national contact points for the purposes of the multilateral environmental agreement in question to liaise
             with other Parties and the Secretariat on various aspects of the implementation of the multilateral
             environmental agreement and to assist in intersessional work. For example, Parties to the Convention on
             International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) nominate management
             authorities and scientific authorities; Parties to the Basel Convention on the Control of Transboundary
             Movements of Hazardous Wastes and Their Disposal nominate competent authorities and focal points;
             Parties to the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification in Those Countries Experiencing
             Serious Drought and/or Desertification, Particularly in Africa nominate focal points; and Parties to the
             Convention on Biological Diversity nominate national competent authorities and national focal points.
             8.     For the efficient exchange of official information under the Stockholm Convention, it is
             important that each Party nominates:
                     (a)      Official contact(s) for the performance of administrative functions under the Stockholm
             Convention and official communications other than information exchange under paragraphs 1 and 2 of
             Article 9 of the Convention; and
                     (b)      National focal point(s) for the exchange of information under paragraphs 1–3 of
             Article 9 of the Convention.

      III. Communication with and representation of observers
             9.     Concerning participation of observers in meetings of the Conference, Article 19, paragraph 8, of
             the Convention states that:
                     “The United Nations, its specialized agencies and the International Atomic Energy
                     Agency, as well as any State not Party to this Convention, may be represented at
                     meetings of the Conference of the Parties as observers. Any body or agency, whether
                     national or international, governmental or non-governmental, qualified in matters
                     covered by the Convention, and which has informed the Secretariat of its wish to be
                     represented as meetings of the Conference of the Parties as an observer may be admitted
                     unless at least one third of the Parties object.”
             10.     Rules 6 and 7 of the Rules of Procedure of the Conference of the Parties read as follows:
                     “Rule 6
                     1.     The United Nations, its specialized agencies, the International Atomic Energy
                     Agency, as well as any State not Party to the Convention, as well as any entity operating
                     the mechanism referred to in paragraph 6 of Article 13 of the Convention, may be
                     represented at meetings as observers.

                                                                                             UNEP/POPS/COP.2/26

             2.      Such observers may, upon invitation of the President, participate in the
             proceedings of any meeting without the right to vote, unless at least one third of the
             Parties present at the meeting object.
             Rule 7
             1.      Any body or agency, whether national or international, governmental or non-
             governmental, which is qualified in matters covered by the Convention and which has
             informed the Secretariat of its wish to be represented at a meeting as an observer, may
             be so admitted, unless at least one third of the Parties present at the meeting object.
             2.       Such observers may, upon invitation of the President, participate without the
             right to vote in the proceedings of any meeting in matters of direct concern to the body
             or agency they represent, unless at least one third of the Parties present at the meeting
             object.”
     11.     During the intersessional period, observers are extensively involved in the implementation of
     Articles 8 and 9 of the Convention, and also in the work of subsidiary bodies of the Conference such as
     the Persistent Organic Pollutants Review Committee and the Expert Group on Best Available
     Techniques and Best Environmental Practices.
     12.     The following paragraphs cover issues relevant to the participation of observers in the
     implementation of the Convention during meetings of the Conference and during the intersessional
     period, divided into three sections in accordance with the groups of observers identified in Article 19,
     paragraph 8, of the Convention and rules 6 and 7 of the rules of procedure.

A.   States not Parties
     13.     For this group of observers, it is suggested that the Secretariat should continue the practice of
     using the lists of UNEP official contact points for communicating with the States not Parties to the
     Convention on any matter pertaining to their observer status during meetings and the intersessional
     period. They participate in meeting of the Conference under Article 19, paragraph 8 of the Convention
     and rule 6 of the rules of procedure.

B.   United Nations, its specialized agencies, IAEA and GEF
     14.     The list of addresses in the United Nations, its 15 specialized agencies, IAEA and GEF (which,
     on an interim basis, is the principal entity entrusted with the operation of the financial mechanism
     referred to in Article 13 of the Convention) is given in annex II to the present note. The list includes
     addresses which the Secretariat has extracted from the lists of UNEP official contact points for
     observers and addresses of the head offices of entities and their key divisions registered at the first
     meeting of the Conference of the Parties. Those observers constitute a definite group of international
     intergovernmental entities. They participate in meeting of the Conference under Article 19, paragraph 8,
     of the Convention and rule 6 of the rules of procedure.

C.   National and international governmental and non-governmental bodies and
     agencies
     15.      These observers constitute an indefinite group of entities selected according to the criteria set
     forth in Article 19, paragraph 8, of the Convention and rule 7 of the rules of procedure. Under
     Article 19, paragraph 8, of the Convention, any such observer body or agency must be qualified in
     matters covered by the Convention and must inform the Secretariat of its wish to be represented at a
     meeting of the Conference of the Parties. It may participate in a meeting unless at least one third of the
     Parties present object.
     16.      Annex III to the present note contains a list of the bodies and agencies referred to above which
     expressed a wish to be represented at the first meeting of the Conference, which are qualified in matters
     of the Convention and for the participation of which no objection was expressed. Only names of entities
     are listed, without addresses, as accreditation refers to entities. The list is divided into two parts: part 1,
     intergovernmental organizations, and part 2, non-governmental organizations. The division is based on
     the differing approaches to accreditation of those entities in the United Nations system, and therefore
     the differing approaches which the Secretariat applied to their accreditation.
     17.    Part 1 of annex III of the present document contains a list of intergovernmental organizations
     which expressed a wish to be represented at the first meeting of the Conference, which are qualified in


                                                                                                                   3
UNEP/POPS/COP.2/26

             matters of the Convention and for the participation of which no objection was expressed. Those entities
             customarily participate in United Nations meetings as observers in accordance with the applicable rules
             of procedure.
             18.     Part 2 of annex III of the present document contains a list of non-governmental organizations
             which expressed a wish to be represented at the first meeting of the Conference, which are qualified in
             matters of the Convention, to whose participation no objection has been expressed and which were
             accredited as observers at the first meeting of the Conference of the Parties. In preparing for the first
             meeting of the Conference, the Secretariat applied the Economic and Social Council rules, mutadis
             mutandis, to the accreditation requirements for non-governmental organizations before applying the
             rules of procedure.
             19.     In addition to the Economic and Social Council rules, screening criteria adopted under other
             multilateral environmental agreements, in particular criteria developed under UNCCD, were applied by
             the Secretariat to the information provided by non-governmental organizations when they were
             requesting accreditation at the first meeting of the Conference. Before the first meeting of the
             Conference of the Parties, the Secretariat invited those organizations to submit the information found in
             annex IV to the present document. That information was intended to confirm the legal personality of the
             organization and its qualifications in matters covered by the Convention. That information is available
             from the Secretariat should Parties wish to review it.

      IV. Possible action by the Conference of the Parties
             20.     The Conference may wish:
                     (a)     To invite Parties to nominate to the Secretariat of the Stockholm Convention official
             contact points for the performance of administrative functions and all formal communications under the
             Convention through their UNEP official contact points or their diplomatic representations;
                    (b)     To approve, with any amendments which they may wish to make, the draft nomination
             form reproduced in annex I of the present note and encourage Parties to use the approved form for
             making their nominations pursuant to paragraph (a) above;
                     (c)   To request the Secretariat to maintain and update as needed a list of official contact
             points and make it publicly available;
                      (d)    To request the Secretariat to use the list, in annex II of the present note, of contacts in
             United Nations offices and specialized agencies, IAEA and GEF, with any amendments which they may
             wish to make, for the purposes of inviting observers to the meetings of the Conference of the Parties and
             its subsidiary bodies and for purposes of communication with observers during the intersessional
             periods of the Conference of the Parties and its subsidiary bodies;
                      (e)    To request the Secretariat to use the list of national and international governmental and
             non-governmental bodies and agencies, in annex III to the present note, with any amendments which
             they may wish to make and as updated by each ordinary meeting of the Conference of the Parties, for
             the purposes of inviting observers to the meetings of the Conference of the Parties and its subsidiary
             bodies and for official communication during the intersessional periods of the Conference of the Parties
             and its subsidiary bodies;
                    (f)      To agree to accredit to the meetings of the Conference the non-governmental
             organizations listed in part 2 of annex III of the present document, with any amendments which they
             may wish to make, and on the understanding that the Conference of the Parties may decide against the
             admission of these observers to any meeting of the Conference of the Parties and its subsidiary bodies
             pursuant to paragraph 8 of Article 19 of the Convention;
                     (g)     To invite non-governmental organizations which are not included in the list contained in
             part 2 of annex III of the present document and wish to be accredited to the meetings of the Conference
             to submit the information listed in annex IV of the present note to the Secretariat at least 30 days before
             an ordinary meeting of the Conference of the Parties;
                      (h)    To request the Secretariat to update the list of national and international governmental
             and non-governmental bodies and agencies after each ordinary meeting of the Conference of the Parties,
             starting with the second meeting of the Conference of the Parties, by including in the list those
             intergovernmental organizations which registered at that meeting and those non-governmental
             organizations which were accredited at that meeting.
