Abstract: The Minamata Convention on Mercury sets the deadline for the phase-out of mercury-containing thermometers and sphygmomanometers.This paper investigates deeply China's current production status of mercury-containing thermometer and sphygmomanometer and the production and application situations of substitutes.It also analyzes the corresponding management and control measures at home and abroad.In the light of the problems faced by China in the implementation of the Minamata Convention,such as a large base of product output,large amount of mercury consumption,lack of regulations for performance and quality of substitutes,poor public awareness and difficulty in recovery and disposal of mercury-containing waste,this paper proposes implementation recommendations of developing and formulating an action plan to phase out production of mercury-containing thermometers and sphygmomanometers,improving the national standards for substitutes,promoting the performance of alternatives,intensifying publicity and establishing and improving the recovery and environmentally sound disposal system.
