Banning DBDPE, a key safety feature used in thousands of products, will likely impact manufacturing jobs and the Canadian economy

Manufacturing and exports will be impacted if companies move production to other countries where DBDPE is not banned.

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

DBDPE is a flame retardant that helps keep consumers safe. It is used in many of the products found in our households. However, the Canadian government is considering banning DBDPE. Canada would be the only country in the world where this safety feature is banned. This could make the products Canadians purchase less safe while also impacting industries that use DBDPE in manufacturing.
