Asia regional paint report

This report presents the results from a recent study of the lead content of oil-based enamel decorative paints available on the market in seven Asian countries.

Studies conducted between 2006 and 2011 have repeatedly shown that many paints with high lead content have been widely available on the market in these countries.

However, the number of paints analyzed in previous studies has been limited, and, in some cases, focused primarily on large, multinational paint manufacturers.
