Short description: Air is an important transport medium for persistent chemicals in general. Heavy metals and persistent organic pollutants (POPs) were included in EMEP’s monitoring programme in 1999. However, by 1995, co-operation concerning heavy metals and POPs between EMEP and other international programs was extended. This co-operation included the establishment of a database and collection of already available data on POPs among the participants. A number of countries have been reporting POPs within the EMEP area in connection with different national and international programmes such as HELCOM, AMAP, OSPARCOM, MEDPOP.
