Discussion of the control and Inspection Analysis of Dioxin in Taiwan
|Publication Year :||2019|
Dioxin is considered the poison of the century and is a dangerous pollutant, listed as one of the persistent organic pollutants in the Stockholm Convention. Dioxin not only pollutes the environment but also cause bodily harm to the human body, the exposure to which would result in dermatological pathologies such as chloracne. In 1997 the International Agency for Research on Cancer classified dioxin as a known human carcinogen, striking terror in the general public. Since dioxin accumulates in the human food chain and impacts human health through the intake of animal foodstuff, our government ought to set clear regulations to control the negative impact of the substance.
In international law, the Brussels Convention and the Stockholm Convention have regulations targeting dioxin, the former restricting the moving of dioxin-contaminated waste, while the latter limiting the disposal of dioxin-contaminated waste. The relevant clauses in the two conventions concerning dioxin ought to serve as guidance for the future amendment goals of our laws and regulations. This paper compares the current laws in our country with the two conventions, and identify the optimal course of regulating dioxin compounds from our country's perspective. Also, this paper conducts an in-depth discussion on the compound testing of dioxin to propose a more efficient way of testing that could be used by the inspection and management personnel from the Environmental Protection Agency, so to lower the chances of environmental and food source contamination and find new approaches against dioxin pollution.
The research finds that our country's environmental regulation of dioxin is quite adequate, but the safety management of foodstuff remains inadequate, and ought to be eliminated as much as possible. Our country's laws have much to improve, and the recommended course of action includes the addition of regulating the dioxin content in livestock feed and enhanced random testing of farms and food manufacturing plants. Future improvement of dioxin as a chemical compound would focus on the livestock as the first line of inspection. Bioassay ought to be incorporated into the rapid testing inspection program to improve testing efficiency.
