1979: Convention On Long-range Transboundary Air Pollution

Related Lineage is:
Provisions coded as containing the code: SCIR
  Provision  First Coders Codes  Second Coders Codes 
Pre.8  Recognizing the need to study the implications of the long-range transport of air pollutants and the need to seek solutions for the problems identified,  SCIR   
Pre.9  Affirming their willingness to reinforce active international cooperation to develop appropriate national policies and by means of exchange of information, consultation, research and monitoring, to coordinate national action for combating air pollution including long-range transboundary air pollution,  INFO SCIR  SCIR 
Art.3.1x  The Contracting Parties, within the framework of the present Convention, shall by means of exchanges of information, consultation, research and monitoring, develop without undue delay policies and strategies which shall serve as a means of combating the discharge of air pollutants, taking into account efforts already made at national and international levels.  INFO SCIR  SCIR INFO 
Art.4.1x  The Contracting Parties shall exchange information on and review their policies, scientific activities and technical measures aimed at combating, as far as possible, the discharge of air pollutants which may have adverse effects, thereby contributing to the reduction of air pollution including long-range transboundary air pollution.  INFO SCIR  INFO SCIR 
Art.6.1x  Taking into account articles 2 to 5, the ongoing research, exchange of information and monitoring and the results thereof, the cost and effectiveness of local and other remedies and, in order to combat air pollution, in particular that originating from new or rebuilt installations, each Contracting Party undertakes to develop the best policies and strategies including air quality management systems and, as part of them, control measures compatible with balanced development, in particular by using the best available technology which is economically feasible and low- and non-waste technology.  SCIR  SCIR 
Art.7.1x  The Contracting Parties, as appropriate to their needs, shall initiate and co-operate in the conduct of research into and/or development of:  SCIR  SCIR 
Art.7.1x.a  (a) existing and proposed technologies for reducing emissions of sulphur compounds and other major air pollutants, including technical and economic feasibility, and environmental consequences;     
Art.8.1x.a  (a) data on emissions at periods of time to be agreed upon, of agreed air pollutants, starting with sulphur dioxide, coming from grid-units of agreed size; or on the fluxes of agreed air pollutants, starting with sulphur dioxide, across national borders, at distances and at periods of time to be agreed upon;  SCIR   
Art.8.1x.c  (c) control technologies for reducing air pollution relevant to long-range transboundary air pollution;  SCIR  SCIR 
Art.8.1x.f  (f) physico-chemical and biological data relating to the effects of long-range transboundary air pollution and the extent of the damage which these data indicate can be attributed to long- range transboundary air pollution;  SCIR   
Art.9.1x.a  (a) the desirability of Contracting Parties joining in and fully implementing EMEP which, as a first step, is based on the monitoring of sulphur dioxide and related substances;  SCIR RELA  RELA 
Art.9.1x.b  (b) the need to use comparable or standardized procedures for monitoring whenever possible;  SCIR   
Art.9.1x.c  (c) the desirability of basing the monitoring programme on the framework of both national and international programmes. The establishment of monitoring stations and the collection of data shall be carried out under the national jurisdiction of the country in which the monitoring stations are located;  SCIR   
Art.9.1x.d  (d) the desirability of establishing a framework for a co-operative environmental monitoring programme, based on and taking into account present and future national, subregional, regional and other international programmes;  SCIR   
Art.9.1x.e  (e) the need to exchange data on emissions at periods of time to be agreed upon, of agreed air pollutants, starting with sulphur dioxide, coming from grid-units of agreed size; or on the fluxes of agreed air pollutants, starting with sulphur dioxide, across national borders, at distances and at periods of time to be agreed upon. The method, including the model, used to determine the fluxes, as well as the method, including the model, used to determine the transmission of air pollutants based on the emissions per grid-unit, shall be made available and periodically reviewed, in order to improve the methods and the models;  INFO SCIR   
Art.9.1x.g  (g) the need to provide meteorological and physico- chemical data relating to processes during transmission;  SCIR   
Art.9.1x.h  (h) the need to monitor chemical components in other media such as water, soil and vegetation, as well as a similar monitoring programme to record effects on health and environment;  SCIR   
Art.10.3  3. The Executive Body shall utilize the Steering Body for the EMEP to play an integral part in the operation of the present Convention, in particular with regard to data collection and scientific cooperation.  SCIR  RELA SCIR
