Abstract
This report summarizes an investigation into the uses of imported polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) in the United States. Imported PCBs are presently used only for the maintenance of certain mining machinery. In addition, PCBs are present as a significant impurity in polychlorinated terphenyls (PCTs) imported for use in investment casting waxes. Importation of PCBs for these uses will be banned after 1977 by the Toxic Substances Control Act, unless exemptions are allowed in accordance with the provisions of the Act. The recent Directive of the Council of the European Communities (EEC) prohibits use of PCBs and PCTs in investment casting waxes, but allows continued use of PCBs in mining machinery in Europe.
