ABSTRACT
The article examines the risks associated with the use of the fabric flame retardant decabromodiphenyl ether in the global textile industry. The attempts at regulation of the use of that chemical by the European Union (EU) are discussed. The author suggests that in place of government regulation textile manufacturers engage in self regulatory behavior governing the use of decabromodiphenyl ether. A chart is presented showing the results of a risk assessment study conducted by the EU, although the textile industry disputes the findings illustrated therein.
