Update on Germany's intention to restrict 4,4'-isopropylidenediphenol in articles and mixtures | Status: Intention
Substance: Bisphenol A; BPA
Expected date of submission 01/10/2021
Details on the scope of restriction:
(*) Restricting the use as an additive and the content in articles (0.02% by weight).
(*) Restricting content of residues (unreacted monomer) in articles – also for imported goods (0.02% by weight).
(*) Restricting the use of mixtures with content of 0.02% by weight for industrial and professional uses where strictly controlled conditions cannot be assured, e.g. in non-automated processes and for consumer uses.
(*) Introducing release rates for BPA from articles (products and subassemblies) during service life (weathering, leaching due to cleaning action) preventing release into the environment and/or (direct) migration to organisms.
