Various countries and the regulations associated with the use of chemicals
In the United States, Federal and State regulations establish standards that one must meet before one can legally use certain pesticides. Federal regulations administered by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) have registered the sale and use of certain preservatives to ensure that only properly trained applicators have access to them. Wood preservatives affected by these regulations are creosote, pentachlorophenol and inorganic arsenicals. In Europe, all the pesticides must be stored in a tightly closed original container and in a safe place. All the chemicals must be stored in a dry and well-ventilated locked area. They must be kept in sealed containers whenever possible. Various treating plants discharge wastes into approved municipal sewer systems for processing with municipal wastes. Many plants use closed chemical and wastewater recovery systems to contain wastes that can be harmful.
