Study "Chemical requirements for other articles – a screening"

Chemicals in articles not yet covered by any of the previous studies of the Consumer Council are subject of this screening study. In particular, furniture including mattresses, hygiene products, paper products, leather products and softened plastic products were investigated with a view to identifying possible chemical contaminants in and existing rules (regulatory and voluntary) for these products. Some recommendations are given as to which substances could be addressed in regulation (and standards). The screening study must be complented, of course, by in-depth investigations for the individual product groups. This study is available as PDF-file.
