The Dossier Submitter has developed a list of substances that can potentially be present in finished articles made of textile, leather hides and fur.
If they are present in articles placed on the market for the general public, please provide any information on concentrations and on possible alternatives to them.
The Annex XV report does not identify alternatives for some of the substances, or groups of substances, that would be affected by the proposed restriction. Please provide any information you have regarding the availability and suitability of alternatives to substances that would be covered by the proposed restriction. In particular, information on alternatives to the following groups of substances would be useful:
For some of the substances proposed to be restricted, there is information in the Annex XV report on the identity of the most likely alternatives but further information is sought about the associated costs and hazards. In particular, information on the following:
According to the restriction on chromium VI in leather articles (2012), the use of best practice can keep the chromium VI concentration in leather articles placed on the market for the general public below 3 mg/kg. The Dossier Submitter has assumed that best practices can achieve a concentration of 1 mg/kg in leather articles. Please confirm if:
The proposal makes reference to EN testing methods. However, it would be good to receive information regarding available analytical methods (CEN developed or otherwise, with a known limit of detection) to achieve these limits.
