Taking the four elements of article 10, para 3, such reviews should take account of: Best available scientific information on effects of deposition of POPs What are the measured/modelled levels? How do they correspond to reference levels (by media)? What are the trends in the indicator media? (optional) This work could be done through a synthesis of recent reports Effectiveness review (1)
Assessments of technological developments Are there any technological developments that are relevant to the basic obligations (article 3)? Changing economic conditions Are there changes in economic conditions that are relevant to the effectiveness of the basic obligations?
