Given the urgent need to protect biodiversity, which supports ecosystem services that are essential to human health, and to ensure the constitutional rights that protect our health and provide for a healthy environment, Mexico needs to comply with the international commitments it has made ​​to reduce chemical risks.

Mexico has signed the following agreements:

·       Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants

·       Minamata Convention on Mercury

·       Rotterdam Convention (international trade of hazardous chemicals)

·       The Basel Convention (transboundary movements of hazardous wastes)

In order to continue to take steps to regulate the use of persistent organic pollutants (POPs) and to mitigate the effects of substances that have already been released, the work of the National Advisory Committee for the Comprehensive Management of Chemicals, Persistent Organic Pollutants and Hazardous Wastes subject to International Environmental Conventions (CCNSQ) must continue.
