Chemical residues (E40)

Criteria question

Does the standard include criteria on testing the final product regarding residues of chemicals?

Guidance

Refers to defining limit values and testing of residues in the final product. The substance groups mostly addressed for testing requirements are alkylphenols, alkylphenolethoxylates, heavy metals, organotin compounds, azo dyes / arylamines, chlorophenole, perfluorinated substances, phthalates, polyaromatic hydrocarbons as well as the substance formaldehyde. 

Degree of Intensity (DoI) 

  1. Limit values for some substance groups are defined and testing is required.
  2. Limit values for all substance groups are defined and testing is required.


In order to fulfil minimum criterion E40, the standard has to include an immediate obligatory requirement to define limit values for some substance groups and require testing with regard to chemical residues.
