A bill has been proposed to the Senate of Brazil to prohibit the extraction, industrialization, import, transport, and storage of asbestos, minerals, and rocks containing hydrated silicates in the country. The bill also proposes a ban on the importation and marketing of products that use asbestos and hydrated silicates as raw material. Under this proposed bill, a step-by-step implementation schedule would allow the mining, industrial, and commerce sectors to adapt to and comply with the ban. The proposed bill is currently before the Infrastructure Committee for review.
