The on-line reporting database of the Basel Convention

Parties to the Basel Convention are required to transmit their national reports to the Secretariat of the Basel Convention (SBC) annually, pursuant to paragraph 3 of Article 13 of the Basel Convention. The online reporting database of the Basel Convention, developed by the SBC, provides access to data and information contained in these national reports. The database is accessible to Parties and others through the Basel Convention website.

The reporting database of the Basel Convention, which is the basis for its online version, was designed and developed, for the Secretariat of the Basel Convention, by the Finnish Environment Institute (SYKE).

The purpose of the online reporting database is to efficiently manage, process and retrieve data and information contained in the national reports transmitted by Parties, annually, to the Secretariat.

Electronic Reporting System of the Basel Convention

The Electronic Reporting System (ERS) of the Basel Convention is the tool to be used by Parties to submit their annual national reports, pursuant to Article 13 (3) of the Convention.

The ERS was developed to make it easier for Parties to submit their national reports and for fulfilling the requests from the Conference of the Parties in the area of Reporting. 

How to consult previously submitted reports:

Reports submitted by Parties can be viewed on the following website: 

Individual reports - for all parties for 2001 to 2016.

Please note that previously submitted reports can only be accessed in a read-only mode.

How to submit reports:

The Focal point to the Basel Convention is the authority responsible for submitting annual reports to the Secretariat, by the 31 December of each year.

The Focal point is provided with account details (username and password) that allow access to ERS for submitting national reports. If you are the Focal point of your country and have not received such information, please send a request by email to sbc_natrep [at] unep.org.

To submit a new report, the Focal point needs to log into the ERS and fill-in the questionnaire for the specific year, for which links are listed below (see Questionnaires-listed by year).

If you have forgotten your account details to log into the ERS, use the account recovery functionality.

In case of problems in using the ERS and/or submitting the national report, the Focal point may contact the Secretariat for assistance by sending an email to sbc_natrep [at] unep.org.
