Workshop reports


This report gives an overview of three workshops which were held in May and June 2001 in Berlin following the submission of the Umweltbundesamt (Federal Environmental Agency) study "Substituting Environmentally Relevant Flame Retardants: Assessment Fundamentals“ (Umweltbundesamt Texte [Federal Environmental Agency publications] 25/01 – 27/01; Vol. I in English: Umweltbundesamt Texte 40/01). The objective of the workshops was to formulate and propose measures for substituting and decreasing environmentally relevant flame retardants. The debate is documented in its essential aspects, summarized and, in view of some new aspects, revised.
