Restriction proposal on the use of 2,4-dinitrotoluene in articles
The European Chemicals Agency's (ECHA) restriction proposal on the use of 2,4-dinitrotoluene (2,4-DNT) in articles is available for comment on the ECHA website. 2,4-DNT is used, for example, in car airbags and seat belts.
The proposed restriction applies to the placing on the market (import, sale and supply free of charge) of 2,4-DNT in articles intended for consumer or certain professional use in concentrations of 0.1% or more by weight. Explosives and munitions for military use are not covered by the proposed restriction. It also does not apply to articles regulated by the Toys Directive (2009/48 / EC) or the Medical Devices Regulation (2017/746 / EC).
