The Consolidated List of Products whose Consumption and/or Sale Have Been Banned, Withdrawn, Severely Restricted or Not Approved by Governments is part of a continuing effort in the United Nations system aimed at disseminating information widely on products harmful to health and environment. It constitutes a tool which helps Governments to keep current with regulatory decisions taken by others Governments and assists them in considering the scope for their own eventual regulatory action. It enables government agencies, which review applications for product registration to ascertain easily restrictive regulatory decisions made in other countries. It complements and consolidates other information on the subject produced within the United Nations system, including data received from United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) on chemicals and from the World Health Organization (WHO) on pharmaceuticals.
