|07/05/2021||NA||The SCCS considers that the present threshold does not sufficiently protect consumers sensitized to formaldehyde from exposure to free formaldehyde from formaldehyde releasers. Reducing the present threshold by a factor of 50, that is, to 0.001% (10 ppm), will protect the vast majority of consumers sensitised to formaldehyde. This threshold applies to the total free formaldehyde irrespective of whether a product contains one or more formaldehyde releasers. TBC Further restrictions will highly likely be adopted following this opinion.||SCCS Scientific Advice 1632/21||EC||Is the 0,05% threshold for the warning "contains formaldehyde” safe for consumers?|
