Fifteen years ago, industrial users in Germany agreed voluntarily to phase out the production and use of PBBs and PBDEs. Twelve years ago the international OSPAR Convention for countries in the North East Atlantic placed BFRs as a class on their list of hazardous materials. It is highly likely that some BFRs will be considered by the Review Committee of the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs), which seeks to ban or severely restrict the production and use of some of the world’s most toxic chemicals, including PCBs and DDT.

2003 Norway Pollution Control Authority requires companies to submit reduction and phaseout plans for BFRs. 2003 Netherlands Prohibits production of bis (2,3-dibromopropyl) tetrabromobisphenol A TBBPA. 2004 EU Ban on penta- and octa-BDE marketing and use in all products takes effect. 2004 EU Deca-BDE currently undergoing debate decision expected late – 2004. 2004 Norway Ban on penta- and octa-BDE takes effect. 2005 Norway Planned ban on deca-BDE. 2005 Norway Planned ban on HBCD and TBBPA if no EU action.
