ABSTRACT
The article discusses the report for the Enterprise and Industry directorate of the European Commission backing the ban on the use of dichloromethane (DCM) in paint strippers. The report estimates that such as more could lead to a loss in DCM sales of €13 million. Produced by consultancy Risk and Policy Analysts (RPA) the report asserts that in the three categories of use, consumer, industrial and professional, consumers are particularly at risk of injury because of improper use.
