Vinyl manufacturers unite to defend medical use of PVC
PARIS -- In December 2012 the French senate passed a law unilaterally banning the use of tubing containing di (2-ethyhexyl) phthalate (DEHP) from pediatric, neonatal and maternity wards. The ban will come into force on July 1, 2015, though France may yet face action from the European Commission if the European Food and Safety Authority (EFSA)'s investigation into DEHP finds that France's ban cannot be scientifically justified. EFSA is expected to report on the matter in May.
