BAN is a global network of toxics and development activist organizations that share a vision of international environmental justice. We seek to prevent all forms of "toxic trade" -- in toxic wastes, toxic products and toxic technologies. BAN members will work nationally, regionally and globally to accomplish the following mission: The Basel Action Network (BAN) works to prevent the globalization of the toxic chemical crisis. In particular, we seek to ensure that the Basel Convention and its ban (Decisions II/12 and III/1) on the export of hazardous wastes from OECD to non-OECD countries will not be weakened, but rather ratified and implemented at the earliest possible date. We also seek to ensure that the Basel Convention and other instruments and efforts, serve to prevent the trade and growth of the world's most hazardous, and often obsolete industries, particularly with respect to developing or newly industrializing countries.
