assistance to developing countries "to assist these countries in strengthening their technical capacity to monitor and, where necessary, control imports of domestically prohibited goods." Such assistance, in the CTE's view, would also help "avoid unnecessary additional trade restrictions on the products involved."


(3) Amendments to the EU PIC Regulation

In July 1996, two annexes to Regulation (EEC) No. 2455192 concerning the export and import of certain dangerous chemicals that are crucial to the implementation of the PIC procedure in the EU were amended (see Council Regulation (EC) No. 1492196 of 26 July 1996 amending Annexes II and III of Council Regulation (EEC) No. 2455192 concerning the export and import of certain dangerous chemicals, OJEC 1996, L 189/19). Annex II, which lists the chemicals subject to the UNEP/FAO voluntary PIC procedure, the importing countries participating in that procedure, and their PIC decisions, was updated and completed. The amendment to Annex III of the 1992 Regulation, which specifies the information to be provided to importing countries in export notifications, is a direct result of the evaluation of the effectiveness of the Regulation by a conference convened jointly by the EU Commission and the European Parliament in July 1995 (see 6 YbIEL, 280-82 ( 1995)). As a result of the 1996 amendments, more information must now be supplied in the notifications, including the identity of the importer, which will help importing countries control imports of PIC chemicals.

At a meeting of the OECD Environment Policy Committee (EPOC), held in Paris, 19-20 February, the governments of the OECD member countries adopted a Declaration on Risk Reduction for Lead. The Declaration was subsequently endorsed by the OECD Council in a Resolution concerning the Declaration on Risk Reduction for Lead. Both acts fit into the framework of the OECD Chemicals Programme, (see 5 YbIEL211-12 ( 1994)).

The 1996 Declaration confirms the member countries' continued commitment to national and cooperative efforts to reduce risks from exposure to lead. It lists priority areas for action, including: risk reduction targets such as the elimination of exposure of children to lead; the progressive phase-down of the use of lead in gasoline and certain other preparations (paints, rust- proofing agents); the management of risks of exposure to lead from food and
