Canada – Restriction of DBDPE and Dechlorane-plus

Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) has indicated its intention to restrict the organic flame retardants Dechlorane-Plus (DP) and Decabromodiphenyl Ethane (DBDPE) (CASRN  84852-53-9)[1]. Both are commonly used in EEE products, particularly wire and cable products and to a lesser degree power boxes and enclosures, industrial adhesives, and industrial rubber products.
