Norway submit Intention to restrict Dechlorane Plus™ | Status: Intention 02/09/2020
Reason for restriction: Dechlorane plus is a substance of very high concern due to its very persistent and very bioaccumulating properties. The substance is widely detected in the global environment and some studies indicate increasing concentrations. Dechloran plus has also been detected in human blood, placenta and breast milk. Norway has submitted a proposal to list Dechlorane Plus and its syn- and anti-isomers in Annexes A, B and/or C to the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants.
