UNEP Guidance Development
To assist governments towards establishing or improving their chemicals control, the United Nations Environment Programme (UN Environment) has developed a publication series on chemicals control. These new documents complement the 2015 UN Environment Guidance on the Development of Legal and Institutional Infrastructures and Measures for Recovering Costs of National Administration (LIRA Guidance). The publications aim to support decision makers in their efforts to establish legal frameworks for chemicals control and the work of government officials involved in building government capacity for chemicals control.
The development of this UNEP guidance document was coordinated by Maria Delvin and Pierre Quiblier, UNEP Chemicals and Health Branch. Rachel Massey and Lindsey Pollard, Massachusetts Toxics Use Reduction Institute (TURI), and Susan Kaplan (consultant) were contributing writers.
The development of this guidance benefited from input from an expert group that included participants from governments, intergovernmental organizations, private sector organizations, non-governmental organizations and academia.
