Lead in Solvent-based Paints in Colombia

This report presents new data on the total lead content of solvent-based paints available on the market in Colombia. It also presents background information on why the use of lead paint is a source of serious concern, especially to children’s health; a review of national policy frameworks that are in place to ban or restrict the manufacture, import, eXport, sale and use of lead paint, and provides a strong justification to adopt and enforce further regulatory controls in Colombia. Finally, it proposes action steps by different stakeholders to protect children and others from lead paint. 

This study was conducted by Colnodo in partnership with IPEN.
