Canada is the only country in the world that is considering banning DBDPE – a key safety feature used in thousands of different products.

The Canadian government is considering banning a key safety feature that helps protect consumers. The ban could affect Canadian access to the latest consumer electronics, and would likely make the products Canadians purchase less safe than products available everywhere else in the world.

What's This About?
DBDPE is a key safety feature used in everything from appliances to consumer electronics to cars and planes.
