Our February issue includes articles on harmful chemicals in baby nappies, action being taken to speed up the biocides Review Programme, the upcoming launch of the SCIP database prototype and much more.

Helsinki, 13 February 2020 – You can read and, for the first time, listen to a podcast about a French study on potential health risks for babies due to harmful chemicals in nappies.

We also address how companies dealing with mixtures need to improve their classification and labelling, the potential consequences for business stemming from the restriction of NMP and and how Europe’s use of IUCLID to collect chemicals data is receiving interest from other parts of the world.

We also cover the upcoming launch of our prototype database of products with substances of very high concern that will make it easier to sort waste and improve recycled materials.

Our Guest Column comes from the German Chemicals Industry Association (VCI) and offers their views on how the launch of the EU Chemicals Legislation Finder in March will help companies find their way through the maze of EU chemicals legislation.
