It is important to avoid spreading of environmentally hazardous substances in the environment. This requirement limits the environmentally hazardous substances in the product.
Ingredient substances1 shall not be classified with the following hazard class and hazard statements in accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 on classification, labelling and packaging of substances and mixtures (CLP regulation), neither in EU-harmonised classification (in accordance with appendix VI in the CLP regulation) nor in self-classification.
1272/2008 on classification, labeling and packaging of substances and mixtures (CLP Regulation).
Classification in accordance with the CLP regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008
Hazardous to aquatic life - long lasting effects (category 1-2)
Enzymes (including stabilizers and preservatives in the enzyme raw material) if they are in liquid form or as encapsulated granules.
1Counted as ingredient substances are all substances in the product at levels greater than 0.01 weight%. Counted as ingredient substances are intentionally added substances and impurities from the raw materials in the product. Reaction products, by-products and degradation products are counted as impurities.
Note that the perfume mixture in this requirement is considered as an ingredient substance.
The supplier shall, upon request, be able to present any of for example the following:
- Valid license for any of for example the following labels:
Good Environmental Choice for chemical products, version 2018:1
EU Ecolabel for:
Hard surface cleaning products, 2017
Industrial and institutional automatic dishwasher detergents, 2017
Hand dishwashing detergents, 2017
Laundry detergents, 2017
- Raw material supplier's safety data sheets for ingredient substances in the product.
- Certificate from the manufacturer of the product stating that none of the substances in the product that is present in levels above 0,01 weight% have been classified as hazardous to the environment with H410 or H411. Safety data sheets for all the ingredient substances shall be available as a basis for the certificate.
- The supplier’s self-declaration including technical documentation of compliance verified by an accredited verification body, accredited for the task in accordance with ISO/IEC 17029 or equivalent standard.
This requirement can be verified with safety data sheets for all the ingredient substances in the product, i. e not with the safety data sheet for the product. See section “2 Hazard(s) identification” in the safety data sheets for the ingredient substances - the hazardous properties of the substance are listed here. Check that none of the specified hazard classes / hazard statements in the requirement are listed here.
If the requirement has been verified with a self-declaration verified by an accredited body, request the supplier's self-declaration including technical documentation of compliance that has been verified by an accredited verification body, accredited for the task in accordance with ISO/IEC 17029.
Please note that this requirement cannot be verified with the product’s safety data sheet. Safety data sheets for all the ingredient substances (rax materials) in the product are required. More information on this can be found under “follow-up”.
Please note that this requirement excludes, among other things, the preservative glutaraldehyde used in certain neutral desiccants.
There are currently no accredited verification bodies according to ISO / IEC 17029 (Conformity assessment - General principles and requirements for validation and verification bodies), as it is a relatively new standard. However, this may change, especially if the demand for verifying compliance in this way increases. This possibility is therefore included in the list of possible verifications. More information about the standard is available at www.swedac.se.
The requirements for chemical-technical products are mainly set for the properties of products and the substances contained, and only in exceptional cases are requirements set for limiting individual specified substances. The intention with this approach is to stimulate technical development so that the environmental and health characteristics of chemical-technical products are continuously improved. Another important idea behind the criteria is to combine the lifecycle perspective with a risk perspective, in other words, focusing on aspects where there is significant risk of substances contained impacting on health or the environment. In some cases, specific relevant exceptions from the requirements are stated.
