The Rotterdam Convention on the Prior
Informed Consent Procedure for Certain Hazardous Chemicals
and Pesticides in International Trade (referred to as the
Rotterdam Convention; also commonly known as PIC), puts

they cannot manage safely.
Evidence is required to demonstrate that

obligations under the Rotterdam Convention.
