Indicators of Progress: National Focal Point Survey

Indicators of Progress home page

Reporting guidelines for IFCS National Focal Points (NFP),
agreed to at Forum IV, indicate that:
"The National Focal Point should report at least once a year
to the IFCS Secretariat on the progress in the implementation
of the Priorities for Action and other matters concerning
relevant chemical safety issues at the national level."

Reporting is done by filling out the IFCS Indicators
of Progress Questionnaire (see below).

The completion of this questionnaire constitutes an important contribution by countries to the IFCS, fulfilling its mandate to
report on progress of governments, international organizations,
and intergovernmental bodies in achieving the IFCS goals
for the sound management of chemicals.
