§ 23-13.4-5. Review of "decaBDE" Study.
By February 28, 2007, the department of health shall submit to the general assembly a report that reviews the department of environmental management's decaBDE study. In addition to a review of any public health implications the department of health believes would result from exposure to decaBDE, it shall also comment on the following:
(1) The known exposure pathways for humans to decaBDE;
(2) What scientific evidence exists to demonstrate that decaBDE breaks down into other chemicals that could pose public health concerns; and
(3) What research and analysis exists on the potential human health effects of flame retardants that could be used as alternative to decaBDE.
