DIAPER CHEMICAL REGULATIONApril 10th, 2020
We offer a regulatory round up looking at chemical restrictions for the manufacture of diapers/nappies. As it stands, there is a proposal being considered at the European Chemical Agency (ECHA) For new restrictions on the use of chemicals to make diapers in the European Union. We would take a look at those proposals and talk to the non-woven sector to see what they thought about them – are they too tough or are they reasonable? We would use this as a news hook to look at other restrictions around the world in key markets – for instance the USA, Australia, India, In China. We would check to see whether there are any national regulations in the European Union that may differ from any EU wide rules.
