Requirements for Banned and Restricted Chemicals in Consumer Product Set for Release in Early 2019

National recommend standard “Requirements for banned and restricted chemicals in consumer product” is awaiting final approval and is expected to be released in 2019, according to details presented by Dr. Xia Liu from China National Institute of Standardisation (CNIS) during REACH24h’s 10th annual Chemical Regulatory Affairs Conference. The standard is an inventory of hazardous chemicals associated with consumer products and specifies corresponding restriction scenarios and limits. The previous version which was named “safety requirements for hazardous chemicals in consumer products”, contained 103 classes of hazardous chemicals in consumer products. It is expected that the majority of technical requirements and overall scope will remain largely unchanged in the new version.
