The main goal of the Stock­holm Con­ven­tion is the pro­tec­tion of human health and envi­ron­ment. Under this con­ven­tion presently are reg­is­tered 12 POP pes­ti­cides (aldrine, chlor­dane, DDT, dield­rin, endrin, hep­ta­clor, mirex, tox­afen), indus­trial chem­i­cal sub­stances (hexa­clor­ben­zen — HCB si poli­clori­nat bife­nil — PCB) and diox­ine and furans sub prod­ucts. These sub­stances have toxic par­tic­u­lar­i­ties, resist degra­da­tion, are bio­log­i­cally accu­mu­lated and trans­ported through air, water and migrant species along inter­na­tional boarder and can be deposited far away from the place of their ori­gin. The Repub­lic of Moldova has rat­i­fied the Stock­holm Con­ven­tion on Per­sis­tent Organic Pol­lu­tants by Law nr. 40-​XV from 19.02.2004. Min­istry of Ecol­ogy and Nat­ural Resource is des­ig­nated as com­pe­tent author­ity for coor­di­na­tion of exe­cu­tion of pro­vi­sions of the convention.
