Mercury-added products: amendment of Annex A and COP decision on cosmetics

Minamata Online Virtual 8 - 8 May 2024

The Conference of the Parties (COP) to the Minamata Convention on Mercury in November 2023 decided to amend Annex A to the Convention, adding mercury-added products to be phased out including all the fluorescent lamps for general lighting purposes. The amendments will enter into force one year after the amendments are officially communicated. The COP also decided to collect information on the challenges in controlling mercury-containing cosmetics for the discussion at the next COP in 2025. This Minamata Online session is to respond to any question on the amendments and the work on cosmetics.
