MOSCOW, November 6 (Itar-Tass) —— A regular meeting on ecology of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) will be held in Paris in February 2012. It will be dedicated to issues waste disposal in Russia, a source in the Russian Ministry of Natural Resources told Itar-Tass.
Representatives from the ministry took part in a recent OECD meeting on ecology and voiced Russia’s position on OECD normative documents. Apart from that, the meeting considered a plan of actions on Russia’s accession of the organization.
“Russia is currently in a ‘transition period’ and needs to implement 37 acts of the Council of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development,” the source said. “As concerns 23 of them, Russian laws comply with international norms, and the rest 14 will be passed according to the schedule.”
According to the source, in order to be admitted to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development Russia has to harmonize its laws. “In 2011, it ratified the Rotterdam convention and the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants, and is now elaborating plans for their implementation,” the source noted.
