Consultation document on proposed risk management for products containing PBDEs: chapter 5


5. Economic and Other Considerations

Economic, safety and environmental impacts will be considered during the development of the measures outlined in the preceding sections. Based on preliminary information, data gaps such as the actual quantity of PBDEs in products manufactured in and imported into Canada, as well as the use pattern of these products, have been identified. A study was conducted to gather the necessary information on PBDEs in products in order to ensure that the data gaps have been addressed. Environment Canada will be consulting stakeholders for feedback and input on these considerations during the development of the proposed regulations, as well as part of the public consultation following publication of the proposed Regulations in Canada Gazette, Part I.
