The on-line reporting database of the Basel Convention

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 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.

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 information on how to log into the ERS. 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.

If you have forgotten your account details to log into the Basel Convention Electronic Reporting System, use the account recovery functionality.
