Quality Assurance Project Plan: Flame Retardants in Electric and Electronic Casings
Quality Assurance Project Plan: Flame Retardants in Electric and Electronic Casings (Number of pages: 40) (Publication Size: 609KB)
|Description||During January through June 2021, the Washington State Department of Ecology will conduct a study to evaluate plastic casings of electric and electronic products, from various manufacturers, for the presence of flame retardants. This project is in support of the Safer Products for Washington program which has identified electric and electronic products as one of the priority product categories that contains flame retardants. Since the phase-out of polybrominated diphenyl ethers, studies have shown an increase in replacement flame retardants in house dust and the environment. The high number of electric and electronic products found in the average household could contribute to the concentration of flame retardants detected.|
