    Takehome:

    • Taiwan EPA listed three POPs into the Toxic Chemical Substance List.
    • Corresponding transitional period was provided for compliance.

    Short-chain chlorinated paraffins (SCCPs, CAS: 85535-84-8), Decabromobiphenyl ether (CAS: 1163-19-5) and Hexachloro-1,3-butadiene (CAS: 87-68-3) are persistent organic pollutants (POPs) controlled by Stockholm Convention since 2017. In response to international management trends of these substances, Taiwan EPA on Nov 6th, 2018 proposed to update the Toxic Chemical Substance List. The proposed updates have been officially approved on Mar 5th, 2019.
