The European Commission (EC) recently adopted new restrictions for the use of 33 substances known to cause cancer and reproductive health problems (referred to as CMR substances) in clothing, footwear and other textile products. The new rules have been adopted by amending the REACH regulation, the most advanced and comprehensive chemical legislation in the world.

The new regulations set maximum concentration limits for the use of CMR substances in clothing and textiles and prohibit products exceeding these limits from being placed on the European Union (EU) market, regardless of their origin of production, according to a press release from the Commission.

The restrictions have been prepared on the basis of scientific and technical recommendations by the European Chemicals Agency.

They will become applicable 24 months after publication of the regulation in the Official Journal of the EU. The Commission is also issuing an explanatory guide on the restriction, which will be available here after the publication in the Official Journal. (DS)
