Two New York organizations have proposed an international agenda for preventing, and responding to, hazardous chemical disasters. The 172-page report recommends steps to address the present lack of an international system for protecting human health and the environment from hazardous chemicals: comprehensive regulations for the manufacture, export, import, transportation, use, storage, and disposal of hazardous chemicals; international guidelines for hazard assessment; an international judicial system for victims of chemical disasters; standards of civil and criminal liability for multinational corporations. For a free copy of the report, contact: Manina Lassen-Grzech, Friedrich Naumann Foundation, 9th floor, 680 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY 10019; phone (212) 333-2521.
