Overview of Requirement

Background
DecaBDE is widely used as an additive flame retardant with applications in many different sectors, in particular in plastic and textile articles but also in adhesive, sealants, coatings and inks. 

DecaBDE was identified as a persistent, bioaccumulative and toxic substance (PBT) and a very persistent and very bioaccumulative (vPvB) substance in accordance to REACH. As a result, DecaBDE was included in the Candidate List of Substance of Very High Concern (SVHC) for authorisation since December 2012. 

However, the Commission considered that making DecaBDE subject to the authorisation list was no longer the most appropriate regulatory measure. Therefore, the Commission proposed to restrict the manufacture, placing on the market or use of DecaBDE, on its own, as a constituent of other substances, in mixtures or in articles.
