This Position Document 4 contains the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) final decision on the Wood Preservatives Pentachlorophenol, Creosote and Inorganic Arsenicals. EPA has decided to: restrict use of these chemicals to certified applicators; require reduction of dioxin (HxCDD) in pentachlorophenol products; institute a consumer awareness program for safe handling of pressure-treated wood; and further protect workers in wood treatment plants through protective clothing and other measures. This regulatory action was taken under the authority of the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act.
