Dear all,

From 30 November to 7 December 2015 the United Nations Special Rapporteur on human rights and hazardous substances and wastes, Mr. Tuncak, undertook an official country visit to Germany, at the invitation of the Government. During this week he met Governmental representatives, NGOs (including PAN Germany) and also pesticide industry representatives.

Among other issues related to chemicals and waste management he focussed on highly hazardous pesticides. His statements are really encouraging as they support the global Appeal for a ban of highly hazardous pesticides and not just focus on national responsibilities – which is of high importance - but in addition address the international trade in hazardous pesticides.

During his end of visit statement  ( he said: „For example, certain hazardous pesticides are banned from use in the EU, but still exported or manufactured by German companies in countries without adequate systems in place to manage these dangerous pesticides. A similar situation exists for industrial chemicals as well. Companies are seriously challenged in tracing the use of chemicals throughout the supply chain, despite the reporting requirements of REACH.

Under a global policy framework, the global community has called for heightened efforts on highly hazardous pesticides (HHPs). The Special Rapporteur on the right to food and myself are calling for the phase out of HHPs, which can be substituted with safer alternatives, according to the FAO. Although many are banned in the EU, European businesses continue to produce HHPs for use in countries where the risks cannot be managed.“

And at a news conference ( where he presented his preliminary findings and conclusions at the end of an eight-day visit to Germany,  Mr. Tucak reiterated a call made earlier this year by himself and the Special Rapporteur on the Right to Food to set an ambitious target for the phasing out of highly hazardous pesticides, or HHPs. (Source/ 8.12.2015:
