Abstract [en]

Polychlorinated biphenyls, PCBs, were used in elastic sealants in buildings during the years1956-1973. Studies of PCB have revealed that it is harmful for humans and animals,especially water-living predators and other top-predators. It is also a persistent organicpollutant and remains in the environment for a very long time. To reduce the levels of PCB inthe environment, it has to be removed from the buildings. According to Swedish law, theproperty holder has to decontaminate sealants with a PCB level of 500 mg/kg or above. Themunicipalities are the supervising authority and they shall follow up the decontaminations toassure that the PCB has been properly removed from the buildings. The PCBdecontaminationin Eskilstuna municipality has not been a prioritised work, hence, there isPCB left in the buildings which need to be removed. To facilitate the decontamination-work,a plan of action has been developed. This plan will assist the inspector in prioritising thedifferent cases.
