Methylene chloride-based paint stripper ban in Europe.


The European Commission proposed to prohibit the use of methylene chloride-based paint strippers in consumer and commercial applications, and professional use.
But would allow to be used in industrial applications where exposure controls could be more easily enforced and permit continued professional use through special licensing. This
February 2008 Brussels proposal would prohibit the marketing and use of paint strippers containing methylene chloride for consumer applications based on concerns about potentially fatal effects to the central nervous system “associated with bad working/operational conditions” and a conclusion that safe use among consumers “can not be ensured by training or monitoring.” But the
European Chlorinated Solvents Association and the Paint Strippers Formulators Group objected the proposal for reasons that "EC’s concerns are unfounded, noting that only one (unconfirmed) fatal consumer accident has been attributed to the use of a paint stripper containing methylene chloride since 1990".
