Deca-BDE and Alternatives in Electrical and Electronic Equipment


The study summarises information on the use of the brominated flame retardant Deca-BDE in electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) and describes suitable alternatives to Deca-BDE. The study has not identified any application of Deca-BDE in EEE for which substitution is not possible, from the scientific or technical point of view.  For all EEE materials and components presently using Deca-BDE, technically acceptable alternatives are available on the market.
