Phasing out lead and mercury

Technical Report:

Abstract

Current work to phase out the use of lead and mercury in Sweden started as a Governmental Commission in 1989 to the National Chemicals Inspectorate and the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency. Proposals for measures to restrict the use of such substances which may have particularly harmful effect on the environment were to be submitted. The work was reported in `risk reduction of chemicals - a government commission report` and includes thirteen harmful substances. In 1991 Parliament passed a government bill (1990/91:90); in which proposals were made to - phase out the use of lead in the long-term, primarily through voluntary measures, - ban mercury in certain products, and to phase-out 75% of mercury usage by the year 2010, i.e. a long-term goal. In May 1991, the Government commissioned the National Chemicals Inspectorate and the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency to report the results of phasing out lead and mercury. This report is the Chemicals Inspectorate`s contribution. It describes, so far, the successful Swedish activities on phasing out lead and mercury. 14 tabs
