Published: 2 September 2016

Policies & Issues: Environment

Orgalime thanks ECHA for the consultation on the proposal for a REACH restriction on articles containing the four phthalates (DEHP, DBP, BBP and DIBP) in concentrations equal to or greater than 0.1% by weight. Orgalime as the voice of European manufacturers of electrical and electronic equipment, mechanical engineering and metal articles would like to comment on the proposal from the perspective of these affected product groups, and expected legislative overlaps with existing sector specific chemicals legislation in particular. Other Possible applications beyond these sectors are not the subject of our response, since they are not included in our membership.
