WCEF2022 Accelerator Session: Practical Implementation of the Basel PIC Procedure for Exporters from Developing Countries

Join us for a session on the “Basel PIC Procedure for Exporters from Developing Countries” on the 8th of December 2022, 2pm (GMT + 2) local time in Kigali. This session is co-organized by the StEP Initiative, Closing the Loop and the PREVENT Waste Alliance.

This event is an Accelerator Session at the World Circular Economy Forum 2022 (www.WCEF2022.com).

It is an online event with physical attendance upon invitation (due to the location size).

The Basel PIC procedure is an important process to be able to export waste from developing countries, and therefore to develop a good recycling industry in these countries. The process is however complicated and unclear.

As a follow-up to the paper that was published as a joint PREVENT/StEP initiative (Practical Experiences with the Basel Convention: Challenges, Good Practice and Ways to Improve Transboundary Movements of E-Waste in Low and Middle Income countries, see here), this session will explore next steps.

It will focus on how to help the industry comply with these regulations, working together with regulators and the industry.
