The Electronic Reporting System
(ERS) of the Basel Convention is the tool to be used by Parties (available
since November 2013) to submit their annual national reports, pursuant to
Article 13 (3) of the Convention.
tool was developed with the objectives of facilitating the submissions of
national reports and of fulfilling the requests from the Conference of the
Parties in the area of Reporting (BC-10/14, BC-10/29, BC-11/7, BC.Ex 1/1, RC.Ex
1/1, SC.Ex-1/1). The new system operates similarly to the Electronic Reporting
System of the Stockholm Convention.

annual reports to the Secretariat, by the 31 December of each year.

submission should be done, please send an email to sbc_natrep [at] unep.org
