The Electronic Reporting System (ERS) of the Basel Convention is the new tool to be used by Parties, from November 2013 onwards, to submit their annual national reports, pursuant to Article 13 (3) of the Convention.
The 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 will operate similarly to the Electronic Reporting System of the Stockholm Convention.
Each Focal Point to the Basel Convention is the responsible authority to submit annual reports to the Secretariat, by the 31 December of each year.
If you are the Focal Point of your country and if you have not received information on how the submission should be done, please send an email to sbc_natrep [at] unep.org with a request for more information.
Please note that the Secretariat is still working on this new tool and we would appreciate it if you could verify the data available for your country in the different years available below and let us know if you notice any problem.
In the near future the Secretariat will make available on this website a variety of queries on the data submitted in a new platform. For the time being, you can consult submissions done until 2 September 2013, for reports concerning years 2001 to 2011, in the Online Reporting Database.
To log into the specific questionnaire, please select one of the links below. You will be asked to provide a username and a password. Please note that reports previously submitted can also be accessed here in a read-only mode.
The excel file template for Tables 6 and 7 can be found here.
