Uruguay bans imports of baby bottles with BPA / Regulation of BPA, DEHP, plasticisers in Taiwan
Uruguay has joined the growing list of South American countries planning a ban on imports of plastic baby bottles containing bisphenol A (BPA). The health ministry said the ban, which it called a “precautionary measure,” was to bring rules on the controversial chemical into line with those planned or in effect in Canada, the European Union and in the other Mercosur countries, where Argentina and Brazil already have taken action – see Plasteurope.com of 08.03.2012.

Authorities in Taiwan, meanwhile, have passed regulations restricting the content of certain chemicals in baby bottles made of polycarbonate, polystyrene and other plastics. Permissible levels for BPA have been capped at 30 ppb, the plasticisers DEHP and DBP at 1.5 ppm and 0.3 ppm respectively.
