National Report on “Lead in Enamel Household Paints of Bangladesh” Launched

Bangladesh Paint Manufacturers committed to phase-out lead paint production

Household enamel paints in Bangladesh contain high levels of lead, according to a new study released on October 26, 2013. The study also found that some brands of paints have lowered lead concentrations since the last paint analysis was conducted by the Environment and Social Development Organization (ESDO) in 2010. In the report launching ceremony, Bangladesh Paint Manufacturers Association expressed their commitment to phase-out lead paint production. They demanded a ban on importing and selling lead pigments.
