PCDD/PCDF Inventories

Release inventories of POPs are an important piece of information for researchers, governments, public sector, and the interested public. Development of PCDD/PCDF inventories are requirements under certain multilateral environment agreements and are of research interest. They reflect a countryís situation at a reference year and typically are updated periodically.

The Dioxin/Furan Toolkit Expert Group recommended UNEP Chemicals make available these inventories. Interested parties are encouraged to submit their inventory reports for inclusion to UNEP Chemicals.
