Under the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants, the promotion of best available techniques (BATs) and promotion of application of best environmental practices (BEPs) became appriopriate. When applying BATs and BEPs for pollution sources, guidelines on BATs and BEPs should be adopted. The Conference of the Parties to the Stockholm Convention, at its 3rd meeting held in 2007, adopted draft of guidelines on BATs and provisional guidance on BEPs.

Since the application of BATs is relevant to many other environment protection themes and areas, there is a lot of mutual relationships to other environmental conventions, principles or approaches, like Basel Convention, sustainable development, IPPC, cleaner production, life cycle management etc.
