This Directive limits the maximum permissible concentration of lead, mercury, hexavalent chromium, brominated flame retardants (PBB & PBDE) and certain plasticisers (DEHP, BBP, DBP & DIBP) to 0.1% and of cadmium to 0.01% in homogeneous materials.
Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 18 December 2006 sets out provisions for the registration, evaluation, authorization and restriction of chemicals in order to ensure a high level of protection for human health and the environment, including the promotion of alternative methods of assessing hazards posed by substances, and to ensure the free movement of substances in the internal market while improving competitiveness and innovation.
This Regulation lays down provisions on substances and mixtures which apply to manufacturing, placing on the market and use of such substances as such, in mixtures or in articles and for the placing on the market of mixtures. This Regulation is based on the principle that manufacturers, importers and downstream users must ensure that they manufacture, place on the market and use substances which do not adversely affect human health or the environment. Its provisions are based on the precautionary principle.
