Creosote has been banned for sale to and
banned for use, since June 30th 2003. The ban
is because of recent research showing that the
use of creosote is more likely to cause cancer
than previously thought.

There is no direct ban on owning creosote
(only on using it), but anyone who still has
stocks should ensure they have safely disposed
of any unused creosote by the end of June last year (2004).
Creosote must not be poured down drains,
lavatories, sinks etc and must not be poured in
or near to ditches, watercourses, wildlife areas
etc. If you are left with any unused creosote, contact your local authority waste department
for advice on how best to dispose of it. Many
local authorities offer a collection service or
facilities at their household waste/recycling sites for waste chemicals. Already-treated timber can continue to be used in gardens so long as 'frequent skin contact' with the treated timber is avoided. Treated timber can also continue to be sold second-hand.

Has been replaced by a product called Creoseal. Think thats the spelling.
