Title of document
The draft Resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine "On approval of the Technical Regulation on the restriction of lead content in paints and varnishes and amendments to the list of state market surveillance authorities and their areas of responsibility" (8 page(s), in Ukrainian)
The draft Technical Regulation is developed to reduce the level of lead in paints and varnishes, namely up to 90 ppm (i.e. 0.009%) in the dry coating film, to ensure the safety human health which corresponds to the best known standards applied in other countries.
The overall broad objective is to phase out the production, import, sale and use of lead-based paints and related raw materials and thus to completely eliminate the risks associated with such materials. Based on the results of determining the lead content in paints and varnishes, declarations of conformity are drawn up and proper labelling of paints and varnishes is ensured.
