The mandate of the Strategic Approcha on International Chemicals Management (SAICM) will end by 2020. At the third meeting of the Intersessional Process (IP3) held in Bangkok, Thailand, 1-4 October 2019, participants, including government representatives, NGOs, private sector, academia and Intergovernmental Organizations continued their discussions on possible elements for a post-2020 platform for international cooperation on the sound management of chemicals and waste, as a successor of SAICM. The new global platform will influence the way countries address chemicals and waste issues and develop their chemicals policy beyond 2020.
