A number of brominated flame retardants have been subject to evaluation by the European regulatory authorities. In some cases risks to health or environment have been identified, and, where appropriate, mandatory risk management measures have been put in place. In other cases no risks to health or environment were identified, with consequently no requirement for risk management measures.
