The French Agency for Food, Environmental and Occupational Health & Safety (ANSES) recently recommended revising the regulatory threshold for chromium VI in leather products and setting a regulatory threshold for nickel in textiles following a study to identify the chemicals likely to be found in these articles that possibly create skin allergies.

The French ministries of health and economy had asked ANSES to identify the skin irritant or sensitising chemicals, regulated or non-regulated, liable to be found in these articles, according to an ANSES press release.

ANSES proposed a classification as ‘skin sensitiser and/or irritant’ for non-regulated substances identified as responsible for skin allergies.

In addition, it recommended organisations responsible for placing apparel and footwear on the market to ascertain with their suppliers the absence of carcinogenic, mutagenic and reprotoxic (CMR) substances, skin sensitising and irritating substances in their footwear or textile clothing and conduct studies to obtain toxicological data on the dyes CI Disperse Orange 37/76 and CI Disperse Yellow 23.

ANSES also recommended reminding consumers of the importance of washing any clothing likely to come in contact with the skin before it is worn for the first time and following the washing recommendations issued by the manufacturer.

The results of this expert appraisal will serve to support the European Union-level restriction proposal under the REACh Regulation being submitted by France and Sweden on skin sensitising or irritating substances found in clothing and shoes. (DS)
