JUNE 2018 – The formaldehyde value chain alliance support CDM3 review

July 26, 2018


In the wake of the third amendment of the carcinogens and mutagens directive (CMD3), Formacare initiated a follow-up of the discussions we first had with the social partners in 2016. As a result, ECEG, Industriall and ETUC aligned with Formacare: the Commission proposal was found agreeable to all. As a result, “the formaldehyde value chain” signed a letter to emphasize strong support in favour of the Commission proposal.

The aforementioned proposal follows recommendations from the Scientific Committee on Occupational Exposure Limits (SCOEL). Formacare agrees that harmonised and binding OELs across member states would be the most efficient choice.
