While the COVID-19 pandemic has forced the necessary delay of important in person meetings, we are all finding new ways to connect and collaborate, including this week’s Act #ForNature Global Online Forum convened by the UN Environment Assembly (UNEA) and the UN Environment Programme. This forum provides an opportunity for stakeholders to collaborate on how we can promote a “green” recovery from the pandemic and take further action at the Fifth United Nations Environment Assembly (UNEA-5) scheduled for February 2021.

Inventory and Evaluation of Publicly Available Sources of Information on Hazards and Risks of Industrial Chemicals
Regulatory authorities from developing countries have expressed a need for guidance in locating environmental, health and safety (EHS) information on industrial chemicals. In response, possible sources were identified via a search of the Internet using relevant terms and by soliciting suggestions from more than 200 knowledgeable stakeholders. This initially identified greater than 100 databases, 41 of which were chosen for further profiling and analysis based on their size and comprehensiveness.
As the worldwide voice of the chemical industry, ICCA is committed to making meaningful progress, in cooperation with governments and other stakeholders, to enhance the safe management of chemicals and waste around the globe.
