Global Pollutant Release and Transfer Register, Proposal for a Harmonised List of Pollutants, Series on Pollutant Release and Transfer Registers No. 16

Author: OECD
Organization: OECD
Language:  English
Year published: 2014

This report identifies all chemicals covered by five PRTR Systems (Australia, Canada, European Union, Japan and the United States) and the Kiev Protocol. It also categorizes these chemicals into general pollutant classes, proposes unique identifiers for pollutants, and identifies common substances across different national/regional PRTRs. The chemical lists developed in this work could form the basis for the future development of guidance or recommendations for core elements of PRTRs.
