    FEICA Position Paper - FEICA proposal for a list of starting monomers for the polyesters exemption

    FEICA welcomes the European Commission’s proposal to keep an exemption for polyester polymers made from monomers on the EU list when polymers subject to registration requirements are defined. While FEICA considers the polyester exemption to be scientifically supported, we acknowledge that the list of starting monomers should be updated to eliminate hazardous monomers.

    This publication includes the FEICA proposal for a list as a starting point for the Commission and the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) to develop an EU list of authorised monomers.

    FEICA Position Paper - Why strictly controlled conditions cannot be technically applied to polymeric precursors

    The European Commission proposed an exemption for polymeric precursors but only if they are handled as intermediates and strictly controlled conditions (SCC) are warranted along the supply chain. With this publication, FEICA would like to bring to the attention of the stakeholders why SCC cannot be applied to polymeric precursors used by downstream users.
