Rotterdam Convention •Parties

Official Contact Points (OCPs)

The secretariat communicates with its Official Contact Points on official issues such as notices regarding participation in meetings of the Conference of the Parties, circulation of the reports of these meetings, proposals for the addition of chemicals to Annex III of the Convention and inclusion in the PIC procedure, and the nominations of experts to subsidiary bodies such as the Chemical Review Committee.

The functions of Official Contact Points are clearly distinguished from the ones of Designated National Authorities (DNAs), with whom the secretariat regularly communicates on administrative matters required by the Convention.
