Lesson 2: HHPs and the International Code of Conduct on Pesticide Management

Mar 24, 2021

The Code of Conduct contains some very useful provisions that have helped many countries but the fact that it is voluntary, and therefore lacks a compliance mechanism, severely undermines its potential to the extent that it has failed to achieve the protection of human health and the environment from pesticide harm as intended.

PAN has always supported the Code, in fact fought hard to get it established and has long used it to monitor activities of governments and industry relating to pesticides in our efforts to protect communities.
