3) Other authors have similarly argued that indigenous peoples' right to free, prior informed consent is gaining "increasing currency" in international law, as recognized by various international organizations and in binding and non-binding instruments.
Community-Based Property Rights (CBPRs) and Prior Informed Consent (PIC) have emerged to fill this gap.
Both measures seek to amend Section 16 of RA 7942 titled Opening of Ancestral Lands to Mining Operations so that No ancestral land shall be opened for mining operations without the free and prior informed consent (FPIC) of the indigenous cultural community and a certification of precondition issued for the purpose by the National Commission for Indigenous Peoples, as specified under Section 59 of RA 8371 or The Indigenous Peoples Rights Act of 1997.
Outsiders seeking to undertake such activities must secure first the concurrence of the affected communities embodied in the free and prior informed consent (FPIC) of the binodngans as required by Republic Act 8371 or the Indigenous Peoples Rights Act.

Included among them are the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants, which will require member nations to reduce or eliminate the production and use of 12 highly toxic compounds, and the Rotterdam Convention on the Prior Informed Consent Procedure for Certain Hazardous Chemicals and Pesticides in International Trade (PIC), which will seek to ensure that companies that export any of a designated set of hazardous chemicals obtain consent from importing nations before the shipments are received.
This procedure is the heart of the new treaty, known as the Convention on Prior Informed Consent (PIC).
The thirteenth meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Basel Convention on the Control of Transboundary Movements of Hazardous Wastes and Their Disposal, the eighth meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Rotterdam Convention on the Prior Informed Consent Procedure for Certain Hazardous Chemicals and Pesticides in International Trade and the eighth meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants are taking place from 24 April to 5 May 2017 in Geneva.
