From the Bureau Veritas Group:
The Governor of Maryland signed into law a bill banning the flame retardant Decabrominated Diphenyl Ether (DecaBDE) from products manufactured or sold in the state. As of December 31, 2010, the manufacturing, leasing, or selling of mattresses, residential upholstered furniture, and electrical equipment containing DecaBDE is prohibited. The ban is extended to all products, with some exceptions, as of December 31, 2012, and those exceptions are phased out by December 31, 2013. The law does not ban selling, leasing, or recycling of used products, products that contain recycled DecaBDE, or products in retail inventory prior to being banned by the law.
