On 2nd February 2016, UNITAR held an inception workshop in Moldova regarding the "Global Project on the Implementation of PRTRs as a tool for POPs reporting, dissemination and awareness raising for Belarus, Cambodia, Ecuador, Kazakhstan, Moldova and Peru". The meeting was in partnership with the Ministry of Environment of the Republic of Moldova and the Environmental Pollution Prevention Office (EPPO).
The PRTR Protocol was ratified in Moldova by the Law no 99 of 26 April 2013 and approved by the Presidential Decree no 658 of 45 June, 2013.
