Open Letter on Chemicals in the PPWR

In line with our letter sent to Commissioners on 30 November 2023 regarding substances of concern in the Ecodesign for Sustainable Product Regulation (ESPR)1, we are now calling on negotiators to maintain the ambition of the Chemicals Strategy for Sustainability (CSS) within the PPWR.

In particular, we ask the negotiators to:

  1. Introduce restrictions in the cases of significant risks to human health or the environment with wording aligned with the ESPR, and
  2. Introduce bans on PFAS and BPA in packaging.
