Procedure for the Analysis of Persistent Organic Pollutants in Environmental and Human Matrices to Implement the Global Monitoring Plan under the Stockholm Convention Protocol 2: Protocol for the Analysis of Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCB) and Organochlorine Pesticides (OCP) in Human Milk, Air and Human Serum
United Nations Environment Programme

The Global Monitoring Plan of the Stockholm Convention sets a framework for the analysis of
persistent organic pollutants (POPs); therein, the congeners recommended for analysis in the core
matrices are listed (see chapter 2 of the “Guidance on the global monitoring plan for persistent
organic pollutants”, UNEP 2013). A protocol is needed to ensure that these compounds are always
analysed correctly in various laboratories and in the same way.
This procedure covers polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB) and organochlorine pesticides (OCP). The
present protocol describes the method for sample preparation, extraction, purification and analysis
of six indicator PCB and OCPs (see Table 1) in human milk, human serum and air.

Procedure for the Analysis of Persistent Organic Pollutants in Environmental and Human Matrices to Implement the Global Monitoring Plan under the Stockholm Convention Protocol 3: Protocol for the Analysis of Polybrominated Diphenyl Ethers (PBDE) in Human Milk, Air and Human Serum
United Nations Environment Programme

The Global Monitoring Plan of the Stockholm Convention sets a framework for the analysis of
persistent organic pollutants (POPs); therein, the congeners recommended for analysis in the core
matrices are listed (see chapter 2 of the “Guidance on the global monitoring plan for persistent

analysed correctly in various laboratories and in the same way. This procedure covers polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE).
The present protocol describes the method for sample preparation, extraction, purification and analysis of eight PBDE that are recommended for analysis (see Table 1) in human milk, human serum and air according to the GMP.
