Toolkit methodology

UNEP Chemicals Branch has developed this Toolkit to assist countries in the identification and quantification of PCDD/PCDF releases. The Stockholm Convention requests Parties to develop and maintain release inventories of unintentionally generated POPs, i.e., assess sources in a consistent manner to allow monitoring of dioxin releases over time and between countries.

The Toolkit consists of a manual and an EXCEL database. It is designed as a simple and standardized methodology containing default emission factors for use by countries that do not have their own measured PCDD/PCDF data from their sources. However, this Toolkit is also applicable to countries that wish to apply their own measured data and emission factors.

The Toolkit is being updated jointly by Chemicals Branch and the Stockholm Convention Secretariat through an open and transparent process (COP decision SC-3/6).

The latest version is the Revised electronic Toolkit (2013) - available through this link
