4 Definition Substances or objectives which are disposed of or are intended to be disposed of or are required to be disposed of by the provisions of national law (Art 2-1) Wastes consisting of elemental Hg Elemental Hg recovered from waste and waste contaminated with Hg, surplus stock of elemental Hg as wastes Wastes containing Hg Waste of Hg added products: 1.Easily releases Hg into env. when broken 2.Other than 1 3.Stabilized/solidified wastes containing Hg Wastes contaminated with Hg Residues generated from mining/industrial processes, or waste treatment processes Definition INC3, 30 Oct 2011, Honda

5 3 Guidance on ESM (1) A General Concept of ESM Provisions by the Basel Convention & OECD Concept of life-cycle approach B Legislative & Regulatory Framework Registration of waste generators Reduction/phase-out of Hg in products & industrial processes Transboundary movement requirements Authorization & inspection of facilities C Identification & Inventory Sources, categories, examples of Hg wastes Inventory development D Sampling, analysis & monitoring Necessary data as critical components in the management of mercury wastes INC3, 30 Oct 2011, Honda

6 3 Guidance on ESM (2) E Waste prevention and minimization for industrial processes for mercury-added products F 1 Handling2 Separation3 Collection 4 Packaging, labelling5 Transportation6 Storage G Environmentally sound disposal Recovery operation Operations not leading to recovery of Hg H Reduction of Hg releases from thermal treatment of waste from landfills INC3, 30 Oct 2011, Honda

7 3 Guidance on ESM (3) I Remediation of contaminated sites Identification of contaminated sites and emergency response Environmentally sound remediation JHealth & safety Protection workers in and around facilities Appropriate working conditions at facilities K Emergency response Emergency response plan Special consideration for spillage of elemental Hg L Awareness and participation Opportunity to participate in environmental activities for local communities and citizens with public sectors INC3, 30 Oct 2011, Honda
