CANADA: The federal government is considering banning phosphates in a variety of household and industrial products, according to The Canadian Press. Environment Canada plans to hire experts to analyze the “socioeconomic and environmental impacts” of proposed new restrictions on phosphates.

The consultants will examine “possible control scenarios, including a total ban on phosphorus in detergents and cleaning products” and report by May 2008. Manitoba and Quebec have already announced plans to limit phosphate concentrations in dishwasher detergents by 2010, and have called on Ottawa to follow suit.

The Canadian Consumer Specialty Products Association (CCSPA), representing 86% of laundry detergent makers, has agreed to implement voluntary phosphate restrictions in Canada.
