  Norway blocks hormone-disrupting detergents.

Wednesday 17 October 2001

The use of the chemicals has been scaled down in the EU over the last decade via voluntary industrial measures, though this represents the first outright ban. Other nations are expected to follow.

Implemented at the end of the year, the ban comes after a recommendation by the country’s national pollution agency.
