What are Persistant Organic Pollutants (POPs)?
Persistent organic pollutants (POPs) are chemicals that persist in the environment, bioaccumulate through the food web, and pose a risk of causing adverse effects to human health and the environment. This group of priority pollutants consists of pesticides (such as DDT), industrial chemicals (such as polychlorinated biphenyls, or PCBs), and unintentional by-products of industrial processes (such as dioxins and furans).

POPs Regulation in Europe

Since POPs went into effect in 2001, the regulation has made headway in reducing persistent organic pollutant emissions in member states. The EU acts on behalf of its member states and has exclusive rights to propose that substances identified by the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) be added to the Convention. In line with its commitment to protecting human health and the environment, the EU POPs regulation sets forth specific measures that:
  • Prohibit or restrict production, marketing, and use of POPs
  • Minimize environmental release of POPs byproducts
  • Impose strict safety management of stocks
  • Ensure sound waste management practices

What Substances are on the EU POPs List?

The EU POPs list is comprised of 30 substances across four annexes subjecting them to specific measures and/or reporting requirements.

Where Can POPs Substances Be Found?
The 30 substances on the POPs list can be found essentially anywhere, but there are some products that contain higher quantities and therefore are regulated. Some of these products include but are not limited to:
  • Pesticides and insecticides
  • Paint
  • Shellfish or wild-caught fish due to pollution
  • Poultry and eggs
  • Medical devices
  • Fire-fighting foam
  • Many consumer goods
