Chemicals in Products

EU regulations for chemicals in products of daily use are — where they exist — patchy and hardly systematic. An all-embracing and consistent overall concept is missing. The Consumer Council has commissioned several studies in this respect. They analyse not only the shortcomings of current legislation but provide also options to close the regulatory gaps. A conference was organised jointly with partners on the subject in Brussels in October 2011. A further conference is scheduled for autumn 2013.
