The changes recommended by the World Health Organisation (WHO) to the toxic equivalency factors (TEFs) for polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins and polychlorinated dibenzofurans (PCDD/F) and the recommendation to extend both the TEF scheme and the tolerable daily intake (TDI) to include "dioxin-like" PCB congeners have significant implications for regulators who have relied heavily on the International TEF (I-TEF) scheme in setting and monitoring limits and exposure to these compounds.
