Postponement of the amendment to criterion 17, environmentally hazardous H412


The implementation of the change in criterion 17, Environmentally Hazardous, that was announced 2019-07-01 and which would come into force on 2020-01-01, has been postponed.  BASTA awaits the review by Swedish Chemicals Agency  in 2020 of the risk reduction properties and definitions, which include environmentally hazardous. Depending on the result of the review, the previously announced change may be adjusted. Therefore the current criteria 17 continues to apply.
