Abstract

This Regulation aims at protecting human health and the environment from persistent organic pollutants by prohibiting and restricting the production, placing on the market and use of substances subject to the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants and the 1998 Protocol to the 1979 Convention on Long-Range Transboundary Air Pollution on Persistent Organic Pollutants. Based upon the precautionary principle, this Regulation aims at minimizing releases of such substances and sets out specific provisions regarding waste consisting of, containing or contaminated by any of those substances.
