Strate­gic Approach to Inter­na­tional Chem­i­cals Man­age­ment (SAICM)

Strate­gic Approach to Inter­na­tional Chem­i­cals Man­age­ment (SAICM) was adopted at the Inter­na­tional Con­fer­ence on Chem­i­cals Man­age­ment (ICCM) on 6th Feb­ru­ary 2006 in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

The Strate­gic Approach to Inter­na­tional Chem­i­cals Man­age­ment is an inter­na­tional pol­icy frame­work to fos­ter the sound man­age­ment of chemicals.

The Strate­gic Approach was man­dated by the United Nations Envi­ron­men­tal Prog¬ramme (UNEP) and endorsed by the Johan­nes­burg World Sum­mit on Sus­tain­able Devel­op­ment in 2002 and the New York World Sum­mit in Sep­tem­ber 2005. It has been devel­oped by a multi-​stakeholder Prepara­tory Com­mit­tee, co-​convened by UNEP, the Inter­gov­ern­men­tal Forum on Chem­i­cal Safety (IFCS) and the Inter-​Organization Pro­gramme for the Sound Man­age­ment of Chem­i­cals (IOMC).

SAICM was devel­oped by a multi-​stakeholder and multi-​sectoral Prepara­tory Com¬mittee and sup­ports the achieve­ment of the goal agreed at the 2002 Johan­nes­burg World Sum­mit on Sus­tain­able Devel­op­ment of ensur­ing that, by the year 2020, chem­i­cals are pro­duced and used in ways that min­i­mize sig­nif­i­cant adverse impacts on the envi­ron­ment and human health.
