Hazardous Chemicals: New Project Starting!

ECOS have kicked off a joint project on chemicals with the Danish, Austrian and Spanish standards bodies.

The project, which is three years long, aims at developing a guidance document to raise the awareness of standardisers about hazardous chemicals in products and to assist them with developing specific provisions in product standards. 

Provisions like this are needed to ensure that standards effectively help ensure that products sold on the EU market comply with the chemicals legislation in place, but also contribute to minimising the health and environmental impacts of chemicals in consumer products.
