Canada assesses melamine, TCPP, TDCPP

The Canadian Government has published draft screening assessments of melamine and of the chlorinated FRs TCPP and TDCPP.
These are open to consultation input to 16th December 2020.
For TCPPP & TDCPP, it is proposed to conclude that they meet Canada section 64 criteria (harmful to the environment or to human health, as currently used), that they are persistent but not bioaccumulative, and that they do not pose a risk in the environment.
For melamine, it is also proposed to conclude that it meets Canada section 64 criteria, because of inadequate data on exposure from skin contact with furniture and mattresses.
Both risk management documents request stakeholder information on alternatives to the use of flame retardants in upholstered furniture and mattresses.
