ABSTRACT
The article presents the report "Not That Innocent: A Comparative Analysis of Canadian, European Union and United States Policies on Industrial Chemicals," published by Environmental Defense, in cooperation with Canada's Pollution Probe. The report asserts that chemical policies need to be underpinned by clear criteria for identifying chemicals of concern. It states that in the U.S., such criteria are limited, poorly articulated and usually presented as guidelines to be applied case-by-case.
