HBCDD set for universal ban by Nick Boley

The brominated flame retardant, hexabromocyclododecane (HBCDD) is set to be banned from use across the globe. HBCDD is a persistent, bioaccumulative and toxic  (PBT) compound and will become the 23rd compound to find its way onto Annex A of the Stockholm Convention.

Under REACH, HBCDD will become an authorised substance from August 2015.
