The Role of Industry in the Elimination of Lead in Paint
International Paint & Printing Ink Council (IPPIC)

“IPPIC notes the long-standing effectiveness of lead-use restrictions that are already in place in many jurisdictions around the world and recommends their widespread adoption by authorities not currently regulating the use of lead in paint and printing ink. To this end, IPPIC supports the UN’s Lead Paint Alliance “Model Law”, as a useful starting point for both government and industry to collaborate on developing restrictions that ensure widespread and verifiable compliance.”

The Global Alliance to Eliminate Lead Paint (Lead Paint Alliance or the Alliance) is co-led by the United Nations Environment Programme (UN Environment) and the World Health Organization (WHO). Information about the Alliance can be found on its official webpage. The working arrangements for the Lead Paint Alliance are described in its Operational Framework. The work of the Lead Paint Alliance is promoted by partners1 to the Alliance. Partners are stakeholders such as governments, non-governmental civil society organizations, paint producers and paint industry trade associations, academic experts and other UN organizations that have applied to UN Environment and WHO and have been accepted as partners by both Organizations according to an agreed procedure. Approved partners are listed on the Alliance website on the Partners page. An Advisory Council2 oversees the work of the Alliance and members are drawn from Alliance partners. The Advisory Council is chaired by a government partner., and members reflect the diverse types of stakeholders.

Introducing MapX platform for ASGM National Action Plans
United Nations Environment Programme

The Minamata Convention on Mercury was adopted on October 10th 2013 to address the effects and risks that mercury poses to human health and the environment. According to article 7 of the Minamata Convention, countries must take steps to reduce, and where feasible eliminate, the use of mercury and mercury compounds in, and the emissions and releases to the environment of mercury from, artisanal and small-scale gold mining (ASGM). To do so, the Minamata Convention requires the development and implementation of National Action Plans (NAPs) specific to the ASGM sector. Countries that have ratified the Convention and that have notified the secretariat that ASGM is more than insignificant within their territories are required to submit NAPs setting out national baselines and objectives within three years. In addition, countries are required to provide updates on progress made in relation to reducing mercury use in ASGM every three years.

Guideline
Method for Determination of Hg Concentration in Stack Gas Using Carbon Traps
United Nations Environment Programme, Scientific Research Institute for Atmospheric Air Pollution

Because of the toxicity of Hg, it is important to know the amount of Hg emissions released by
point sources. Several methods are available to measure Hg emissions. These methods differ
in level of complexity, application conditions, and their ability to speciate Hg. The scope of this document is description of the procedure for the determination of vapor phase Hg mass concentration in stack gas using carbon traps based on US EPA Method 30B.
The procedure can be applied in countries around the world.
