Friday, 21 December 2018
Note: The EcoWaste Coalition and the Philippine Association of Paint Manufacturers (PAPM) are very pleased to share the following press release to mark the 5th anniversary of the issuance of the country's Chemical Control Order for Lead and Lead Compounds, and to signify the groups' backing for the 2019 phase-out of lead-containing industrial paints. Hope you find this useful, thank you very much, and joyful holiday greetings.
In celebrating the International Lead Poisoning Prevention Week of Action (ILPPWA), Tanzania Bureau of Standards (TBS) and other institutions had been urged to enforce standards on lead in paint to protect children.
