UNEP-led activities in support of this SAICM emerging issue
The Chemicals in Products (CiP) project is an ongoing activity at UNEP on the policy and practical facets of access to information on the chemicals contained in everyday products. The activities focus on increasing the availability and access to the information actors need – throughout the life-cycle of products – so that they can properly manage those products and the chemicals in them.
A first phase of the CiP project (2009 – 2012) centered on assessing the situation globally and in developing recommendations to bridge gaps in CiP information access and exchange. The current phase of the project (2012 – 2015) concentrates on developing a means to assist in bridging those gaps; this is the CiP programme, a distinct output of the CiP project and one which will be proposed to ICCM4.
