This requirement cannot be used in combination with 10586 "Unscented". The requirement can be used in combination with the requirement for sensitizing substances (10584), which also limits substances classified with H334.
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.
The version date indicates when the sustainability criterion was created or last updated. Last reviewed dated tells when we last checked that the sustainability criterion still is relevant.
