Oeko-Tex Standard 100 meets EU proposal on lead in garment
14
Feb '14
In mid-December 2013, ECHA (European Chemicals Agency) started a 60-day public consultation on Sweden’s proposal for a European ban of lead and its compounds, after different commissions had agreed on the proposal.

The proposal requires to restrict the content of lead and its compounds in consumer articles (or parts of the articles), which can be placed in the mouth of children.

Garments and accessories are or can also be affected by this proposal that will become European law soon with a high degree of certainty. The specified limit value is 0.05 % (= 500 mg/kg), expressed as lead metal.

With a limit value of 90 mg/kg (= 0,009 %) for the total content of lead, the OEKO-TEX Standard 100 sets far stricter requirements. This is why articles and materials which meet the OEKO-TEX requirements are already on the safe side.
