ABSTRACT
The article discusses how some countries are addressing the health and environmental concerns posed by flame retardants found to be hazardous for the immune, reproductive or nervous systems especially in developmental stages. Topics discussed include European Union's legislative framework on chemicals streamlined by Regulation on Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) and its complete ban on flame retardants including tris phosphate and polybromobiphenyls.
