This report is the second review of the National Action Plan pursuant to Article 5 of the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs). Emissions from relevant source categories in different environmental media are updated and compared with data from the National Action Plans of 2008 and 2012. The efficacy of national legal regulations has been assessed again and it has been investigated if Best Available Techniques (BAT) in combination with Best Environmental Practices (BEP) have already been applied. Current recommended procedures are developed in order to reduce emissions of POPs in the future.
In general, the findings of the NAP 2008 and 2012 remain valid for the near future.
Measures to reduce emissions from residential combustion sources should be continued. Monitoring programmes should be carried on. Data availability on POP releases should be improved.
