World Health Organization (WHO) International Lead Poisoning Prevention Week of Action
October 22-29, 2016

The International Paint and Paint and Printing Ink Council continues to actively support the work of the Lead Paint Alliance in advancing its “Action Plan” goals for 2016 and beyond.  Working collectively and in conjunction with the LPA “partners program”, IPPIC members have been encouraged to make an organizational commitment to the LPA as a “partner” as this is a clear indicator of industry (and paint manufacturer) support.  To date, IPPIC is aware of formal partnership letters submitted by industry associations in Japan, the United Kingdom, Brazil, and Canada, which collectively represent the support hundreds of paint companies in their combined membership. More can be expected as each IPPIC association completes its required approval process.

Also in support of the International Week of Action, IPPIC is pleased to announce a series of two industry workshops to be held in Medellin and Bogota Colombia on November 9 and 10, 2016 respectively.  These workshops, which will be focused on industry education and technical requirements for lead use restriction in residential and decorative paints, are being organized by ABRAFATI which is the Brazilian Paint Association, an IPPIC- affiliated organization and a member of LatinPIN - the Latin America regional alliance of coatings technicians and paint manufacturers.

The workshops will draw on support of STAR and ACTR, paint technical societies from Colombia, and ANAFAPITY which is the industry association in México.  The IPPIC Secretariat will participate in these workshops, which will feature content from the current LPA “toolkit”, as well as technical support provided by local standards organizations.  Representatives from the Colombian government and local NGO’s have been invited to attend and participate.  A detailed summary of the workshops will be provided to the UNEP and WHO Secretariat to the LPA.
