US EPA Restrictions on the Use of 5 Flame Retardants

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued five final rules under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) on Jan. 6, 2021, to reduce exposures to certain persistent, bioaccumulative and toxic chemicals. This ruling drives the need for companies that manufacture or sell articles containing these chemicals, such as plastics, electronics and adhesives, to eliminate the chemicals from their products. These restrictions do not apply to Food and Drug Administration-approved medical devices.

Hear UL’s experts and Bruce Calder, vice president consulting services at Claigan Environmental, share the new restrictions, updated deadlines, common uses of the chemicals and practical approaches to compliance.
