In our blog entry France and Sweden Want to Ban Allergens in Textiles, we reported on the proposal that the two countries presented to the ECHA. From June 19 to December 19, 2019, you can make your position on the proposal known. You can find more information on the ECHA Web site. The ECHA has also published guidance on the consultation.
After the consultation, the Risk Assessment Committee (RAC) and the Committee for Socio-Economic Analysis (SEAC) will assess the ban. The RAC position is expected in May 2020, and the SEAC analysis in July 2020. The EU will then decide about making the proposal part of Annex XVII of REACH.
Will a possible ban affect you? We would be pleased to advise you. Simply contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
