EU Ecolabel Regulation

EU Ecolabels - Restrictions for Hazardous Substances/Mixtures

This database contains: (1) the list of hazardous substances harmonized for classification and labeling in EU (i.e. Table 3 of Annex VI to CLP Regulation); and (2) the Candidate List of substances of very high concern (SVHC). The EU Ecolabel may not be awarded to substances or mixtures classified as such. Note that this list is not exhaustive. While the harmonized list covers many hazardous substances, other ones not listed may also meet the classification criteria in accordance with the CLP.

Food Contact Regenerated Cellulose Directive

Food Contact Regenerated Cellulose Directive - Authorised Substances

This list contains the substances and substance groups authorized by the EU in the manufacture of regenerated cellulose film intended to come into contact with foodstuffs. Representing Annex II of Directive 2007/42/EC, the list is divided into first and second parts, for uncoated and coated regenerated cellulose film, respectively. For some entries, the list includes functional classes, maximum and minimum limit values, and other restrictions.

OELs - Occupational Exposure Limits - 1st list

Occupational Exposure Limits - 1st list - Indicative OELVs

The list is based on Council Directive 98/24/EC. Member States are mandated to establish national occupational exposure limit values (OELVs) for the substances listed in the Annex, taking into account the Community values. The Directive establishes values for a reference period of eight-hours time weighted average and also for a short term period of 15 minutes for 58 substances.
