ECHA consults on Danish proposal to restrict chromium VI in leather goods
16 March 2012 / Europe
The Danish Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has submitted an Annex XV dossier proposing the restriction of chromium VI in leather articles, which will now be subject to a public consultation.
The Danish report proposes a restriction on the placing on the market of leather articles containing chromium VI in concentrations above a certain limit that come into direct and prolonged or repetitive contact with the skin, based on evidence indicating the substance causes severe allergic contact dermatitis in humans.
