Fifth Meeting of the International Conference on Chemicals Management (ICCM5)
July 5, 2021 - July 9, 2021
The ICCM undertakes periodic reviews of the Strategic Approach to International Chemicals Management (SAICM), which is a policy framework to promote chemical safety around the world. The mandate of the Strategic Approach ends in 2020 and an intersessional process is to develop recommendations for shaping the Strategic Approach and international chemicals and waste management after 2020.
Decisions will be taken by the 5th International Conference on Chemicals Management (ICCM5) from 5 to 9 October 2020 under German chairmanship in Bonn. The United Nations is the organizer of this conference. ICCM5 is expected to be attended by 1,500 representatives from all groups of actors and sectors relevant to SAICM and will discuss the future chemicals policy in plenary sessions and working groups. A ministerial segment in the form of a conference is also planned.
