Saicm launches online information platform for chemical of concern


The UN’s Strategic Approach to International Chemicals Management (Saicm) has launched a website, dedicated to sharing information about chemicals of concern.

The Knowledge Management Platform was launched on 7 April and brings together resources, news and opinion articles, and information about events around the globe.

It is part of the Chemicals Without Concern project funded by the Global Environment Facility (GEF) to tackle emerging policy issues, specifically lead in paint and chemicals in products.

The website aims to explore “ways to create, manage and disseminate knowledge on chemicals of concern”.

It is currently a beta version and feedback is welcome.
