The report notes that informal and substandard recycling of lead-acid batteries is a leading contributor to lead poisoning in children living in low and middle-income countries, which have experienced a three-fold increase in the number of vehicles since 2000. (...) Often, the workers and the exposed community are not aware that lead is a potent neurotoxin. Other sources of childhood lead exposure include lead in water from the use of leaded pipes; lead from active industry, such as mining and battery recycling; lead-based paint and pigments; leaded gasoline, which has declined considerably in recent decades, but was a major historical source; lead solder in food cans; and lead in spices, cosmetics, ayurvedic medicines, toys and other consumer products. (...) The return on the investment is enormous: improved health, increased productivity, higher IQs, less violence, and brighter futures for millions of children across the planet. ” While blood lead levels have declined dramatically in most high-income countries since the phase-out of leaded gasoline and most lead-based paints, blood lead levels for children in low- and middle-income countries have remained elevated and, in many cases, dangerously high even a decade after the global phase-out of leaded gasolines.

At its recent annual meeting (March 2009), IPPIC had an opportunity to discuss the UN’s proposal to form a “global partnership” to address environmental lead concerns arising from the continued use of lead in paints. (...) The objective1 of the partnership would be to “facilitate a phase-out of the manufacturing and sale of paints containing lead and the eventual elimination of risks from paint containing lead which contribute to childhood lead exposure”. (...) To this end, we respectfully suggest the following definition which is consistent with current industry trade practice: Page 3, Letter from IPPIC Secretariat on ICCM Project-Lead in Paints “The term ‘lead paint’ includes paints, varnishes, lacquers, stains, enamels, glazes, primers or coatings used for any purposes where lead is intentionally added to achieve a defined lead concentration expressed as a percentage of the total non-volatile portion of the product or in the weight of the dried paint film.”
