The mandate of SAICM will end in 2020. We have now an opportunity to develop an ambitious international framework to prevent and eliminate adverse impacts on the health of people and the environment, across the lifecycle of chemicals and wastes. It is important to preserve the multi-stakeholder and multi-sectorial character of SAICM while making sure that it contains the possibility to include legally binding obligations, together with national measures for meeting those obligations. Consideration should be given to a legally binding overarching global framework for the sound management of chemicals.
