Abstract

An account is given of the manner in which regulatory decisions for a number of environmental chemicals have been made in Canada. The sources of evidence for such decisions are reviewed and applied to tris(2,3-dibromopropyl)phosphate, drinking water contaminants, polychlorinated biphenyls, lead, dioxins, and urea-formaldehyde foam insulation. Finally, the societal implications of too mechanistic and approach to risk estimations are considered. © 1984.
