Excerpt: The purpose of this brief note is to bring together present ideas on the prevention and management of PCB accidents. In part, this summary is based on the papers presented in the Espoo symposium, in part, it reflects our own experience on PCB accidents. Some of these matters were discussed in the Espoo meeting; however, the views presented do not represent any consensus of the participants. The present authors are solely responsible for these opinions. The primary goal in the management of PCB accidents is certainly prevention. To a certain extent, this goal will be achieved by exchange of PCB-containing transformers and capacitors. This, however, will only be reached in the long run; one has also to remember that the disposal of PCBs and electric devices containing them is a major problem. In addition, the safety, including fire resistance, of the substitutes has to be verified. It thus seems that PCB-containing electric appliances will be around for a long time. Of course. this is especially true of the millions of small electric appliances containing minute amounts of PCBs.
