The EU legislation that applies to detergents and maintenance products
EU regulations ensure that all detergents and maintenance products available on the market are safe for the end-user and the environment. The EU applies the most ambitious set of regulations for the placing on the market of chemicals. The most relevant pieces of legislation for detergents and maintenance products are:
- REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals)
- CLP (Regulation on Classification, Labelling and Packaging)
- BPR (Biocidal Products Regulation)
- Detergents Regulation
The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) is the EU agency responsible for the implementation of EU chemical legislation. ECHA works for the safe use of chemicals for the benefit of EU citizens and the environment. A.I.S.E. is an ECHA accredited stakeholder, working with ECHA towards successful implementation of key legislation such as REACH, CLP and BPR.
