The Sound Management of Chemicals (SMOC) initiative provides a framework for regional cooperation for the sound management of the full range of chemical substances of mutual concern throughout their life cycles, including pollution prevention, source reduction and pollution control.
In general terms, the SMOC initiative focuses on chemicals in trade, their products, and long-range transport of chemicals across borders. To this end, the CEC facilitates discussion, coordination and mutual assistance among the three Parties.
