The International Lead Management Center (ILMC) was created in 1996 by the lead producing industry to help industry, governments and intergovernmental agencies manage risks associated with lead in respect of the environment and human health.
The ILMC offers advice and assistance across the industry and throughout the lead lifecycle from mining, smelting and refining through to recycling. The ILMC is also sensitive to cultural, technical, geographical and socio-economic complexities. Risk management solutions are tailored to the distinct lead exposure issues identified by experienced multi-tasking teams.
All the Risk Management Projects that ILMC has been involved with have been carried out in conjunction with national governments, the lead industry and intergovernmental agencies, such as the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development, the United Nations Environment Programme, and the Secretariat to the Basel Convention. Such multi-stakeholder projects increase the credibility of the work and the level of global awareness of the Environmentally Sound Management (ESM) of leaded product streams.
The ILMC has built on its 10 years of experience to develop a Risk Reduction Toolbox offering practical guidance on a wide range of issues. The ’Tools’ are available in English and Spanish on the ILMC website at www.ilmc.org.
