EPA claims growing evidence that certain polybrominated diph-enylethers (PBDEs) persist in the environment and accumulate in living organisms and the possibility that these chemicals cause certain adverse health effects. EPA proposed last December to curb the manufacture and import of these substances. Specifically, EPA proposed a Significant New Use Rule (SNUR) which, if implemented, would require manufacturers and importers to notify EPA at least 90 days before manufacturing or importing any one or more of the PBDEs listed.
