Activities

By its decision BC-13/17, the Conference of the Parties to the Basel Convention, requested the Secretariat to prepare, subject to the availability of funding and for the consideration of the Open-ended Working Group at its eleventh meeting, a document containing options on how to move forward on electronic approaches to the notification and movement documents, taking into account, inter alia, the results of a survey on the issue to gather recent information from Parties and others on existing electronic approaches.

Parties and others were therefore invited to respond to an online questionnaire on electronic approaches to the notification and movement documents on 12 April 2018. The responses received are presented below.

A first survey on electronic approaches to the notification and movement documents had been conducted in February 2016 to assist the ICC in developing recommendations to the Conference of the Parties on ways to improve implementation of Article 6 of the Convention. Responses to that survey can be found here.
