Il Regolamento (CE) n. 850/2004 è abrogato dal Regolamento (UE) 2019/1021 (POPs) (entrata in vigore 15.07.2019)


Persistant Organic Pollutants (POPs)

Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) are chemical substances that persist in the environment, bioaccumulate through the food web, and pose a risk of causing adverse effects to human health and the environment. This group of priority pollutants consists of pesticides (such as DDT), industrial chemicals (such as polychlorinated biphenyls, PCBs) and unintentional by-products of industrial processes (such as dioxins and furans).

Persistent Organic Pollutants are transported across international boundaries far from their sources, even to regions where they have never been used or produced. The ecosystems and indigenous people of the Arctic are particularly at risk because of the long-range environmental transportation and bio-magnification of these substances. Consequently, persistent organic pollutants pose a threat to the environment and to human health all over the globe.

Regulation (EC) No 850/2004 of 29 April 2004 complements earlier Community legislation on POPs and aligns it with the provisions of the international agreements on POPs.

To a certain extent the Regulation goes further than the international agreements emphasising the aim to eliminate the production and use of the internationally recognised POPs.

The Regulation contains provisions regarding production, placing on the market and use of chemicals, management of stockpiles and wastes, and measures to reduce unintentional releases of POPs. Furthermore, Member States must set up emission inventories for unintentionally produced POPs, national implementation plans (NIPs) and monitoring and information exchange mechanisms.

Article 12 of the Regulation requires annual reporting by Member States on the actual production and use of POPs, and triennial reporting on the implementation of other provisions of the Regulation ("Article 12 Reports").

The first synthesis report (Annex I - Annex II) for the period 2004-2006 and the second synthesis report, for the period 2007-2009, were completed in 2009 and 2011, respectively.

Both of the reports were finalised by contractors on behalf of the Commission. These synthesis reports present the consultants' findings and do not constitute the view of the European Commission.
