ECHA begins consultation on use of NPs & NPEs in textiles
03
Oct '13
The ECHA public consultation on the restriction proposal for use of NPs & NPEs in textile articles is open from 18 September 2013 to 18 March 2014. Early comments are welcome by 29 November 2013 to assist with the first discussions on the proposal.

NPs are used as intermediates in the production of various derivatives, mainly NPEs which can break down into NPs again in the environment. NPEs are still used, for example as detergents, in the manufacturing of textile articles, particularly outside the EU.

Washing of these textile articles releases NPs and NPEs to the environment through waste water. The reason for the proposed action is a concern for the aquatic environment.
