Technical Guidelines on specially engineered landfill (D5) and on incineration on land (D10)

Technical Guidelines on specially engineered landfill (D5) and on incineration on land (D10) were adopted at COP 3, in 1995. Both documents are available on the publications page.

At its thirteenth meeting, by its decision BC-13/6, the Conference of the Parties (COP), decided that that the technical guidelines on incineration on land (D10) and on specially engineered landfill (D5) should be updated.

In paragraph 6 of the same decision, the COP established a small intersessional working group (SIWG), operating by electronic means, to undertake the work of updating both technical guidelines.

In paragraph 5 and 7 of the same decision, the COP invited Parties to consider serving as lead countries and invited Parties and others to nominate experts to participant in the small intersessional working group.

The government of Canada has offered to lead the referred work on the D5 technical guidelines. The government of Argentina offered to initiate the work on the D10 technical guidelines, and the Secretariat, in consultation with the small intersessional working group, with work further on these guidelines. 

Please find here the list of members to the SIWG on D5 and D10 technical guidelines.

The SIWG has met once, online, on the 9th of October 2017.
