Sometimes, it is more important to know which substances are likely to be restricted next than knowing which substances have already been restricted. In this article, we will give you a preview of the next batch of substances that are likely to be restricted in EU so that you can get prepared in advance.
ECHA maintains a registry of restriction intentions submitted by various Member States. Those registration intentions can provide us with a very good clue about which substances are likely to be restricted next in EU. The table below is a summary of those substances.
|Substance Name||Product or Scope||Impact|
|Substances with harmonised classification as skin sensitisers in Category 1 or 1A or 1B in Annex VI to Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008||Textile, leather, hide and fur articles||High|
|Polycyclic-aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs)||Granules and mulches as infill material, disposable baby diapers||High|

|Formaldehyde and formaldehyde releasers||Mixtures and articles for consumer uses||Low|
